Read more about its story below!
Fazenda Pedra Grande is located in the heart of Brazilian Coffee production, South of Minas Gerais, near the city of Campestre. The farm is run by the second and third generations of the Ribeiro family, most actively by Luís Antônio Moares Ribeiro, and his two twin sons Felipe and Fernando. Their coffee grows at an altitude of 1,150 meters above sea level, relatively high for Brazil producers and perfect for growing high quality coffee. Named after a large rockface that dominates the local landscape, the farm provides stunning scenery and offers ranging views across the minas countryside due to its high elevation.
The plantations are distributed across 400 ha , all of which is drip irrigated to better preserve the environment and ensure high average production. Fazenda Pedra Grande is very careful when it comes to biodiversity protection. This is most obvious when looking at the area of 135 ha of natural forest to keep the environment balanced and preserved. The farm also has a highly trained team of 36 people who constantly take technical courses for specializing in a sustainable and efficient coffee production with a focus on both environment and people.
We recently visited the farm ourselves and it was a true privilege to meet Luis, Felipe and Fernando in person. We toured their farm, tasted some excellent new crop coffee, shared brilliant meals and most enjoyably, watched the champions league final together alongside a few Brazilian beers! We look forward to working with them for years to come.
Coffees from south Minas are famed for the supreme balance they possess, making them perfect house espressos for their ability to cut through and complement milk based drinks, whilst also shining alone as an espresso.
Expect the characteristic notes of Chocolate, Honey, Caramel and Stone Fruit with a good body and delicate sweetness.
