Background Details

This coffee is sourced from Fazenda Palto Azul, located in the Cerrado Mineiro region, a protected origin within the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Fazenda Palto Azul is owned by Elio Carneiro and it has a total area of more than 7,000 acres but the vast majority is protected forest with less than 2,400 acres cultivated with coffee. Fazenda Palto Azul uses a rain catchment system and drip irrigation lines to deliver carefully measured moisture and nutrients to the coffee plants. During the harvest the estate employs more than 150 people.
