Brejetuba is situated in the mountains of Espirito Santo state and is one of the major Arabica producing communities in this region. Its soil is mineral and rocky. The proximity to the coast and mountainous terrain creates a condensation of moisture which makes it one of the rainiest coffee producing regions in Brasil. This brings a unique acidity and sweetness reminiscent of high grown Colombian coffees. The region was settled by Italian and German descendants who went on to create well small yet well kept family run farms.
2018 was FAFCoffees’ first year’s involvement in this region partnering with local coffee specialist Rafael Marques and his team. Rafael has 17 years of experience helping local farmers and together with Felipe Croce and FAFCoffees they have teamed up to bring new varietals and processes to the region.
