Fatima Beize de Oliveira

The Santa Maria de Jetibá municipality, named for the Santa Maria de Vitoria River and jequitibá, tree, is one of the last places where descendants of Northern German and Polish immigrants preserve the Pomeranian language and culture. 2,000 rural producers produce 90,000 bags annually. Fatima Beize de Oliveira, age 33, has distinguished herself as a producer of high quality coffee and impacted the agricultural practices in Sao Luiz, 7km from the center of Santa Maria de Jetibá, in the Capixaba Mountains. Fatima says that her father always grew coffee, but never of any remarkable quality. After the death of her only brother seven years ago, she started growing coffee herself to save the family property. Inspired by her husband Elivelton de Oliveira, age 40, a coffee grader, she resolved to produce specialty coffees on her four hectares. “The secret is to depulp coffee the same day it was picked. Coffee drying on the covered patio is managed hourly so it doesn’t ferment,” says Fatima, mother of Evandro, Camila, and Leticia, ages 15, 8 and 3. Fatima’s sustainable methods include recycling water and applying coffee cherry pulp as fertilizer.

With the honey process a certain amount of mucilage and pulp are allowed to remain on the coffee bean during depulping. The cover will stay with the bean during fermentation and drying thereby contributing to the sugars absorbed by the bean and affecting the flavour notes of the final cup. The amount of mucilage remaining defines the type of honey process - white, yellow, red or black in ascending order of mucilage concentration. If they are processed properly, the coffees can take on quite a lot of sweetness and flavours while remaining clean.

Raised drying beds (sometimes referred to as African drying beds) are often preferable when working with honey processed coffees, because of the additional airflow they allow. The air ensures that the beans dry evenly and reduces the incidence of fungi and bacteria formation. On the other hand, some farmers are accustomed to using sun-exposed patio drying that require a regular raking of beans to avoid moulds. While total fermentation and drying time depend on such choices as well as ambient temperature and moisture levels, red honey processing easily needs two weeks from depulping until drying has completed.
