Fazenda Dutra is a family run farm owned and operated by Ednilson and Walter. They were born on the farm and 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 more than 1100 hectares.
Produce high quality coffee every year requires knowledge, innovation, technology and people who have passion for what they do . Our quality is connected with our cultivars, growing altitude, climate, soil chemistry, harvesting and processing conditions, drying method, storage conditions.
Our Ecofriendly Coffee Plantations house a wealth of biodiversity because the entire stretch of coffee forests support different specialized habitats, both micro and macro for all types of flora and fauna. In our crops it is common to find a wide variety of plants, animals, insects and birds.
Osvaldina Dutra has worked with coffee her entire life. She knows the importance of coffee quality and the fundamental role that agriculture and processing play in the entire process. For many years she has sought ways to improve the quality of her coffee and in the process has adopted better production processes on the farm. Her two sons, Ednilson and Walter, are entirely involved in the family’s business, both in administration and in the field.
Direct Trade is about building lasting relationships that create maximum mutual benefit. In this model, you are buying direct from the farm and connecting roasters to producers.
While Fair Trade is an important system, and there are many ethical importers, direct relationships truly allow for full transparency between buyers and sellers. Roasters see firsthand the growing and working conditions at Fazendas Dutra, in this way you can be sure we are supporting sustainable and ethical practices.
These relationships open up the lines of communication, allowing both buyer and seller to understand each other’s costs and agree on a price that reflects those realities. That translates into better prices for producers, and higher quality coffee for roasters. These coffees come in at competitive prices and they’re totally worth it.
