Pedro + Joao
Pedro Gabarra is a 6th-generation producer who grows coffee with his father, Joao Newton Teixeira. Environmental sustainability is of the utmost importance to Pedro and Joao. In 2019, they received an award for being the most sustainable coffee farm in Brazil. The farm is also a rehabilitation and release area for native bird species and has 2 aviaries.
Yirgacheffe is a high altitude region, with some areas reaching up to 2000 metres above sea level. These high altitude climates result in warmer days & cooler nights, which can contribute to slowing down the ripening of the coffee cherries. The longer the cherries are in contact with the seeds, the greater potential for flavour and complexity in the cup.
