We’re thrilled for the very welcome return of a coffee from talented producer Cláudia Bustamante, who we first purchased from in 2019 at the Carmo Best Cup Auction.
This newest lot that we have purchased, Fazenda Pedra Pretá is an Acaia varietal that has been naturally processed. We purchased this coffee via Carmo Coffees who exported the coffee and Cafe imports who imported the coffee for us. With this coffee we’re reminded of cotton candy, strawberry ice cream and chocolate. The last time we had Cláudia’s coffee in it went down a real treat and you’re in for the same experience this time around.
Focusing on quality, productivity, well-being of the workers and preserving the environment, Cláudia has followed the example of her father, who first purchased the farm this coffee was produced on.
Cláudia is active in AMECAFÉ (Mantiqueira de Minas Region Women’s Coffee Entrepreneurs’ Association) and is part of the fourth generation of coffee producers in her family. Her daughters are also starting their lives in the wonderful world of coffee - One of her daughters studies agronomy at UFLA (Federal University of Lavras) and participates in a coffee research group, QICafé, and the other studies veterinary medicine.
Cláudia actively manages the farm, participating in all processes, from analyzing areas for new planting, following the agronomists, purchasing agricultural inputs, overall management of production, harvest, post-harvest and commercialization.
