The production of coffee began on Fazenda Freitas 35 years ago in 1984 when Osmar Junior, better known as Juninho, planted 10 hectares of Arabica coffee in the soil of Cerrado Mineiro. These first 10 hectares provided about 100 bags of exportable coffee. Now they have 114 ha of coffee planted in the micro region within the Cerrado. For Juninho the real pleasure is walking onto the farm during the flowering to take in the beauty and intense sweet aromas the flowerings produce. Now Osmar and his son Gabriel run the Nunes Estates and they believe part of their success is due to the continually renovating 10-15% of the farms each year allowing the opportunity to trail new varieties and then also processing methods with these. On the farms they are very interested experimenting with fermentation styles and yeast to see the impact on the cup. In 2017 on the farm they produced the winning Cup of Excellence Pulped Natural coffee.
We found this exceptional Coffee to offer a twist on the traditional Brazilian profile. Bold and fruity Fazenda Freitas can be enjoyed across all brew methods.
