Fazenda Fortaleza – Brazil

forest fruit, raisins, chocolate

  • Espresso

Fazenda Fortaleza dos Borges is located in the south of Minas, at 1000 masl and counts with more than 21 bushels of preserved Atlantic Forest. The farm is owned by the Borges family, which has always been focused on specialty coffee production. Patricia's grandfather was a pioneer in coffee production, bringing seedlings from a neighbouring town in the ox cart. Her father worked to increase the planting area and after he passed, he left a cultivated field for each son and daughter.

After receiving her father's inheritance, Patricia started her activities in coffee. In Patricia's words, "It was very difficult at first, but I learned a lot. Today I know that my product is excellent and that's why I look for buyers who value my coffee".

Nowadays, she is entirely focused on high-quality coffees. The property is linked to IWCA Mantiqueira, International Alliance of Coffee Women, AMECAFE Mantiqueira - Association of Women Entrepreneurs of Coffee, and APAS - Association of Producers of Alto da Serra, which in March received the Fairtrade certificate provided by FLO - Fairtrade Labeling Organizations. This seal strengthens social responsibility and supports fair and sustainable trade for small and medium-sized local producers.
