Description: Arrival comes from the Brazilian city of Varginha. In 1996, three women claimed to have seen a large-headed bipedal creature with red eyes and unusual skin markings in Varginha, Brazil. The women assumed it was injured or sick and fled, later describing it as the "devil." Rumors of UFOs and additional unidentified creatures followed, along with reports of military and government personnel in the area, an animal "prowling" a forest, a police officer's death, and unexplained animal deaths at the zoo. Some ufologists later alleged connections between these claims, including the claim that one of the witnesses was impregnated by the creature. We had the chance to visit Varginha back in 2019 and we cannot wait to return soon! We hope you enjoy this coffee as much as we do! Dare to believe
*Fermentation Note: Arrival was fermented anaerobically for 72 hours, with Selvatech yeast (formulated for improving cup score in coffee). After fermentation, coffees were laid out in thin layers to be sun-dried for uniform drying, and then rested for 30 days before dry milling.
