About this coffee :
Dutra Farms (Fazendas Dutra) are located in the beautiful region of Matas de Minas, in São João do Manhuaçu which is 300km inland from the east coast of Brazil. Coffee production takes place through entirely artisanal processes that make a substantial difference in the final result of the product.
The Dutra brothers have been involved in growing coffee since the day they were born. Production takes place in a mountainous region, approximately 1400 meters above sea level. Due to the artisanal process, the altitude and the soil of the farm, they obtain a differentiated product and, with this, the coffees are classified every year among the best coffees in Brazil and in the world, both in quality and sustainability.
Coffees are grown in contour lines in consortium with avocado production and African mahogany which are for shade grown coffee. In addition, the farms are self-sustainable in the production of eucalyptus, which is reused during the harvest period and in the coffee drying machines.
The cultivation of coffee is in conjunction with nature. The coffee plantations are planted among rocks, woods and waterfalls, in perfect harmony with the environment. These are coffees with extremely different cups for the market.
The cherries are carefully hand-sorted and floated to separate out less dense beans, then coffee cherries are placed on raised beds where it is hand sorted again and dried over a period of 14 to 21 days. The cherries are also covered during the afternoons to prevent harsh drying in the intense sun.
This is a classic Brazilian coffee with lots of nutty notes that pairs incredibly well with milk. We like to enjoy a flat white with this coffee, a less milk option to enhance the caramel sweetness, follow by a roasted almond finish.
