Note from our supplier 32-Cup
When Edson Morais de Barros bought Pe de Cedro Estate in 2012, it already had a reputation for producing high quality coffee. As the current owner, Edson continues to build the potential of the farm and the Mantiqueira de Minas region. He collaborates closely with a team of agronomists to produce coffee that fulfills the highest potential of his farm. The agronomists advise on new machinery and processing techniques and innovations in coffee cultivation practices. In addition, Edison has put together a team of coffee production experts who are employed year-round at his farm and the estate’s wet mill. They follow up closely with all day-to-day quality processes.
Pe de Cedro produces coffee in line with the Best Coffee Practices and the region’s coffee traditions that gave Mantiqueira de Minas the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) certificate. This means the estate follows environmentally friendly practices and uses the approved coffee varieties. Unlike many of the farms in Brazil, all harvesting at Pe de Cedro is done manually. One of the essential coffee practices is processing cherries the same day of harvesting.
