Sitio Pinhalzinho has great positioning at high altitude of this mountainous region making conditions ideal for the production of speciality coffee. Sergio Luis Riccetto battles the usual challenges of a changing climate, extreme weather and periods of drought on his 13 hectare farm but though commitment to the land he consistently produces coffee of high quality.
Due to it's dry climate the producers in the region of Divinolandia tend to specialise in naturally produced coffee, like this lot. This proccess is also traditional and requires much less water than other processing methods. The main harvesting period is July where coffees are picked by hand before being seperated by ripeness and patio dried.
