Another Brazillian coffee from Carmo de Minas, Fazenda Santuário Sul.
The sanctuary farm is a project that was born from a goal of being ahead of market trends. It is not easy to begin planning with plans to bring coffee from different regions of the world to generate a new profile of Brazilian coffee.
Very carefully, the varieties planted there are monitored closely to be able to offer the best result within the climatic conditions of the region. In addition, Luiz Paulo himself makes sure to always taste the first samples of each of these coffees.
Starmaya is the progeny of two parents, Marsellesa and CIR-SM01. The Marsellesa line (created by CIRAD), was chosen for its resistance to coffee leaf rust and its organoleptic qualities. Starmaya’s novelty lies in the use of CIR-SM01: researchers discovered that it doesn’t produce pollen, in other words it is male-sterile. Planting the two parents varieties side by side in a seed garden ensures that the only pollen produced - that of Marsellesa - will fertilize the CIR-SM01 plants. The seeds produced by CIR-SM01 as a result of this natural cross-pollination are therefore all F1 hybrids of the new Starmaya variety.
