Brazil is the largest producer of coffee in the world, pumping out over 2 million tonnes every year! This month we are excited to present, with the help of Minas Hill, a delightful micro lot from Brazil’s Most Sustainable Farm 2019.
Pedro Gabarra, Joao Newton’s son, is the 6th generation of coffee growers in his family. Coffee is more than a business: coffee is a passion for the family. The care for the environment is paramount at the farm and it is recognised by the certifications they carry such as RFA (Rainforest Alliance).
One of Pedro’s farm’s is part of WINGS project as a rehabilitation and release area. They take care of 2 aviaries to help and release native birds back to the wild.
Pedro is also dedicated to a Carbon Positive policy for the family’s long running enterprise. This means that through smart technology and practice, more emissions are removed from the environment than created. The image of solar panels and rows of coffee trees side by side is a poignant metaphor for the vision of Santo Antonia.
