With over 30 years of coffee growing experience, Mr Bernardes operates his farm with his wife and two sons. Their small-scale production allows them to focus on the quality of the coffee from the careful handpicking of the ripest cherries through to the regular turning of the coffee as it dries in its skin and pulp. Once the coffee has dried to its optimum moisture content the beans are rested for one month before being hulled, graded and bagged.
The farm is located in the Minas Gerais region, which has some of the highest elevations amongst Brazil’s coffee growing regions. The cooler climate at this altitude allows for slower cherry development giving this coffee its mild but distinct acidity.
All of our coffee is now in sold in the most sustainable carbon-neutral packaging. We use the new, innovative designs from Dutch Coffee Pack, which is made entirely of plastic that is 100% recyclable. All of the carbon emitted in the production of these bags is compensated in full by reducing emissions elsewhere without compromising the freshness of the coffee inside.
