PEDRA BONITA LOT 11
Posted: Categories: Coffee
Introducing this limited edition natural coffee from the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. Pedra Bonita Lot 11 is an exceptional coffee from brothers Ednilson & Walter Dutra.
This is our third coffee from them in as many years as they are one of the best examples of specialty coffee in Brazil and their continuing commitment to improving quality every year is one of the many reasons for their success. We source this coffee from one of our green coffee suppliers Cuprima who have been working with the Dutra family for so many years now that they have exclusive crops just for them which include the lots Pedra Bonita, Pedra Dourada, Pedra Encantada and Pedra Redonda.
Fazendas Dutra is comprised of eight farms all of which belong to members of the Dutra family. Together, the farms occupy more than 700 hectares of prime coffee growing land nestled with 300 hectares of native preserved areas in the green hills of the Sao Joao do Manhuaçu district in the spectacular coffee-producing state of Minas Gerais. The Dutra family have a strong respect for nature and have thus planted “green curtains” which protect against strong winds and provide an eco-friendly and natural control against pests. The brothers also focus on the preservation of local water supplies and carefully manage the water used in their Fully-Washed and Semi-Washed processing. The farm, as well, recycles coffee waste to be used as fertilizer for the plantation, and all plastic waste on the farm is recycled.
This particular offering hails in from Pedra Bonita district of Minas Gerais in Rio de Janeiro from the Fazendas Sitio Das Pedras farm. It is naturally processed of the catuai vermelho variety.
We are delighted to showcase their coffee here at Three Fools Coffee. This offering has delicious tasting notes of caramel and hazelnut with hints of yellow and red fruits. We can’t wait for you to try this one!
