The ProducerPEDRO GABARRA TEIXERIA
Fazenda Pinhal is a 914 hectare farm located close to the city of San Antonio De Ampoaro in Sul De Minas. Its owned and run by the Gabarra Teixeira Family, who acquired the farm in 1994, and employ 49 people in peak season.
Surrounding the coffee farm, which only represents 35 per cent of the farm’s total area, is a vast expanse of natural land which the family preserves, protects and invests in. This includes a nature reserve, Eucalyptus forest that’s being regenerated and pastureland for cows, as well as a bird aviary and sanctuary that they have set up to rehabilitate injured birds, many of which have been rescued from illegal trafficking.
It’s this passion for coffee and the natural world that’s kept us buying coffee from Fazenda Pinhal, and Pedro’s other farms, for the last 15 years. As well as showcasing specially produced microlots like this one through our Discovery roastery, he is the producer of our Brazil single origin coffee found in supermarkets, and his coffee has been a mainstay in some of our most popular supermarket coffee blends.
