About this coffee producer
One part of this regional blend comes from Fazenda Santa Helena owned by the Dutra family. The Dutra Family is known for their passion for sustainability and their focus on specialty grade processing. Solar energy is big at their fazendas where all of the depulpers run on solar power and the mechanical dryers are next on the agenda for this clean energy conversion. The estates collectively boast nearly 750 acres of native forest to protect water sources and create natural barriers to protect the coffee trees from wind and erosion. The Dutra family also takes their role as employer very seriously with big investments in a school located at the estates and a health care program for employees and their families.
But let’s not forget that this lot is a blend with the other component coming from Fazenda Recanto, owned by the Saquarema Group, which has an impressive collection of estates with nearly 8,000 acres of organic coffee cultivation and an impressively large production of organic fertilizer dedicated to sustaining organic coffee production in the region.
