About Fazenda IP
Isidro Pereira, the father of Luiz Paolo Dias Pereira, acquired Fazenda IP in 1967, which is named after his initials. Luiz was studying agriculture when the farm became part of the family, but he joined his father after five years to enhance production and improve quality. By 1974, Luiz started expanding the farm, which now spans 720 hectares, a fivefold increase from its original size. The estate grows Yellow Catuai, Yellow Catucai, Acaia, and Yellow Bourbon coffee varieties and processes them through natural and honey methods. The farm is situated outside the city of Carmo de Minas, between 950-1200 meters above sea level, providing ideal conditions for slow ripening and selective cherry picking, which are crucial factors in producing outstanding coffee.
About the Coffee
This coffee is of the Red Bourbon varietal and offers a delightful red candy sweetness.
In Brazil, microlots are a recent addition to the specialty coffee industry, unlike the larger-scale farming operations that are widespread in the country. These microlots usually comprise a small portion of a single estate's specialized coffee that is separated from the total volume produced, or they are sourced from smallholder producers with 10-30 hectares of land, which are common in our usual sourcing regions. Microlots are anticipated to exhibit exceptional quality, resulting in higher pricing in the top tier.
Drying: 20 - 25 days on rasied beds
