About the coffee
Farm: Sitio Pinhalzinho
Owner: Segio Luis Riccetto
Type: Yellow Bourbon / Mondo Novo
Altitude: 1200 masl
Sitio Pinhalzinho has great positioning at high altitude, making conditions ideal for the production of speciality coffee. Segio Luis Riccetto battles challenges of a changing climate, extreme weather & periods of drought on his 13-hectare farm, but through a commitment to the land, he consistently produces coffee of high quality.
Due to its dry climate the producers in the region of Divinolandia tend to specialise in naturally produced coffee, this process is also traditional & requires much less water than other processing methods, The main harvesting period is July where coffees are picked by hand before being separated by ripeness and patio dried.
