lemon gelato/ume plum

Roasted Wednesday 4th August 2021

Edinei & his wife Inês have a 3-hectare plot of coffee growing on what has been the Edinei's family dairy farm for nearly 40 years. Edinei's father took out all the coffee in the '80s due to very low prices & concentrated on dairy.

Recently Edinei & his eldest son Eduardo decided to give coffee a chance again, focussing only on producing quality. The farm is a family affair with everyone helping out during harvest. When the coffee plants are young grass is left to grow along the rows to retain moisture. The farm is fertilised with the manure from the cows.
