Brazil Ametista took its name from Greek mythology, according to which Amethyst, used to be a beautiful nymph under Artemis’s. Dionysus turned her into a gem and seeking attonement, gave the stone a purple shade, his favourite colour, and the power to protect its carriers from poisoning. For centuries it was considered a remedy for drunkenness, courage and inner peace.
Ametista is an excellent coffee, with mild fragrance, excellent aroma, full body and pleasant sweetness. The preparation is pulped natural. The coffee cherry skin is removed and sun-dried on a raised drying bed with the flesh still attached to the skin.
