As the name suggests, dozé fazendas (“twelve farms”) is a result of twelve micro farmers located in the Cerrado Mineiro region of Brazil who joined each other to blend their harvest of 100% Cerrado coffee cherries.
In the Brazil the natural process means ripe and raisin cherries are collected, cleaned and separated by weight at washing stations. The pre-drying process occurs under the sun between 2 to 7 days or more (farmers favor full sun dried process whenever possible) and finalized in mechanical driers followed by 30 days of resting in wood boxes to homogenize the dry coffee.
Cerrado de Minas is located in the northwest of Minas Gerais state. The region is a big plateau where predominant topography is flat to slightly wavy. The altitude varies from 900 to 1250 meters above sea level.
Cerrado also has one of the most complex and diverse regions in the world. The area is home to roughly 5% of all species on earth.
