 Arapiraca Grandfather Herb, from the Nicotiana Rustica strain, is named after its origin in Arapiraca, a city in northeast Brazil's Alagoas state. Known as capital for Brazilian Rustica; Arapiraca transitioned from cultivating cereals and cassava to Grandfather Herb at the end of the nineteenth century, developing a thriving culture over the next 50 years.

The production of rope Grandfather Herb is a meticulous craft, requiring experience and skill. After harvesting, the leaves are sorted by quality and dried in the shade. The central leaf grain is then removed from the partly dried leaves, which are interlaced and twisted into ropes. These ropes undergo a slow fermentation process while ripening on vertical racks, enhancing their flavor and resulting in a final dark brown appearance. The entire process, from harvesting to maturation, exemplifies traditional craftsmanship, producing high-quality Grandfather Herb for Hapé makers.

Raw is in raw rope form and sliced into small pucks.

Prepped is finely shredded and dried for the perfect incense offering.
