The cool, green hills of the Sul de Minas region have the perfect conditions to grow amazing coffee, the area between two important delta’s in Brazil: The Grande River delta and the São Francisco River delta.
Henrique Dias Cambraia, owner and manager of the Fazenda Campo Alegre, is the fourth generation running this farm.
Henrique claims the success of the estate is due to a combination of factors: the altitude of a whopping 1200 metres above sea level, a stable climate with an daily average of 21 degrees, technically skilled management of the estate and the farm and the continuous training of the staff, based on their own quality control program.
The single origin lots are carefully kept separated to ensure good traceability. After picking, the ripe yellow cherry is sundried on patio’s. After drying, the beans are removed from the dry cherry skins and processed. This method, called natural process, gives the coffee a sweet and fruity character.
