Background Details

This coffee is sourced from a family-owned estate located within the municipality of Perdizes in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Nossa Senhora de Fatima is owned and operated by Ricardo de Aguiar Resende and his wife, Gisele, who are both third generation coffee producers. The estate consists of 395 hectares, of which 235 are planted with coffee, while the rest is preserved with native trees, flora and fauna. Ricardo and Gisele have made environmental protection a priority and invest significantly in reforestation projects. They also produce organic fertilizers from coffee pulp and micro-organisms found on the estate. The estate has housing for workers and a school to ensure a full education for the workers’ children.
