Planalto da Bahia is a large plateau in the middle of Caatinga, one the driest regions in northern Brazil. The first coffee plantations in this region were started by immigrants from the south in the 1970s. Since then coffee has become an important part of the region’s economy.
Planalto da Bahia's high altitude and unique weather patterns have impacted the coffee tree behavior, productive cycle and the harvest and post-harvest process. Harvest starts later than in other regions because the region receives more rain. The moist environment gives way to multiple flowerings and results in uneven maturation. This generally requires selective harvesting by hand; only ripe cherries are picked and processed. Being higher and colder the maturation process for coffee in Planalto da Bahia is slower resulting in a more complex and aromatic sensorial experience.
