Fazenda Caixetas
£10.79

Born in 1956 in the city of Altinopolis, Sao Paulo, Wagner Ferrero carries in his blood a passion for coffee. Grandson of Italian immigrants that arrived in Brazil in 1912 to work in the coffee plantations, the Ferrero family is a big name in the small world of great Brazilian coffee. 

The coffee plantation has been in the family for three generations and its one of the oldest coffee plantations still producing coffee in Brazil.

Wagner Ferrero sums up the family philosophy with this quote “I think the minimum a farmer can do is take care of the land, return to the soil that which it gives us, and think of the future. It’s an exchange. Nature is wise. And vindictive”.

The family process this coffee in a nearby mill, keeping each day’s pickings separated. All that labor-intensive processing and lot-separation ensures two things: First, we can build lots by choosing our favourite day’s harvest, our favourite parts of the farm, and our favourite varieties. Second, once we choose our favourites, we can rest assured that they’re going to lose absolutely nothing in the course of milling and transport.

Fazenda Caixetas is the jewel in their tiny crown. In fact the word Caixetas means a small ornamental box for holding precious jewels.

The farm supports a local school and also funds various training schemes and courses for its staff. It is certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Fazenda Caixetas considers the health of their workers a priority; offering health, dental plans, and school for their children. It’s kind of a big deal, at least to people like us who care about the little things.

TASTING NOTES

There’s a cake infused with the tart juice of tender plums, covered in warm milk chocolate thats been drizzled with almonds on the table and poinsettias by the fireplace.
