carmo-flowers

These are Acaia arabica flowers. Coffee blooms all at once. Cerrado has one big flowering, other areas can have 4-5. Sul de Minas has 2-3 but you can see here that the bulk of it is at one time. You'll see in the following pictures that we were at the farm a day or two before flowering. It is like an explosion when they open. The fragrance is so delicate, and it looks like snow has fallen over the farm. This cultivar is Catucai - a cross between Catuai and Icatu.
