Fazenda Dutra is a family run farm owned and operated by Ednilson and Waltin Dutra who are brothers and great friends. Ednilson is the commercial manager; Waltim handles day-to-day production and PR. They have been coffee producers all their lives—their father started the farm with one hectare, buying a second and third hectare from the farm’s profits until he had grown his land to 500 total hectares. The different lots in Fazenda Dutra represent the original names of the individual farms that Don Dutra absorbed into his property.
Don Dutra passed away in an accident on the farm when his sons were young, but Ednilson and Waltim have continued operations of the Fazenda in his honor and in the family name. The brothers have been growing their operations year by year, and have won a number of national competitions, including the 2014 Cup of Excellence.
In the cup, we encounter some unique characteristics for Brazilian coffee, such as subtle cherry, lemon, hazelnut and chocolate.
