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. Production takes place in a mountainous region, approximately 1400 meters above sea level.
The Dutra family have been cultivating coffee cherries for nearly 70 years. The sons of Jose Dutra, Walter and Ednilson are now running the farms they have heavily invested in. Focusing on education regarding producing organic coffee, they moved their business into the new century, and have become synonymous with producing quality specialty coffee.
The coffee production takes place through hand crafted processes that can be tasted in the final cup. This lot of red catuai comes from the medium levels of the farm. Due to the topography of the land all harvesting takes place by hand. After picking the coffee is separated and then dried on patios for 4 days before then being dried in a mechanical drier for 72 hours at a temperature between 35 - 40 degrees.
Why No. 10 – Pele. Need we say more!
