BRAZIL, CORREGO DAS PEDRAS
Julia Figueiredo is the 4th generation of coffee grower at Corredo Das Pedras in the Figueiredo Family and she came back to coffee in 2015. Initially Julia had decided to study Psychology and pursue a different career but after her studies and spending time at home with the family at their 271ha farm she found that her passion and calling was coffee wanting to learn from her father and grandfather. Julia now works alongside her godfather Lucio as they seek to drive the quality forward from the farm.
In total the farm is planted with 169 ha of coffee and this specific lot comes from the Yellow Catuai varietal that has shown to give a sweet and balanced cup. The farm mainly uses mechanical collection for the coffees and after harvest the coffees are machine sorted by density and ripeness to determine what process is then done.
