Fazenda Pântano is operated by the Ferrero family, a family of Italian heritage whose ancestors migrated to Brazil in 1912 to work on coffee plantations. The fazenda covers over 700 hectares, of which more than 100 hectares are kept uncultivated as a natural forest reserve. The Ferraro family supports a local school and funds various staff trainings. Besides the traditional natural processing method, Fazenda Pântano also applies the so-called “eco-washing“ method. After harvesting, the cherries are pulped and immediately dried on African beds, which saves valuable water resources.
It is our 4th consecutive year buying coffee from this farm and each year we are amazed by the consistency in processing. This pulped natural lot has smooth chocolatey notes combined with nuts and soft citric notes.
