Fazenda Pantano has a beautiful, rich and balanced flavour profile with notes of milk chocolate and praline with a hint of tangerine. It is the perfect option for those who prefer a full bodied, creamy espresso and will also go really well with milk.
About the Coffee
Fazenda Pantano is owned by Wagner Ferrero who has taken an innovative approach to coffee farming in a country that is mostly focused on the commercial pressures of coffee production. First of all there are only 300 hectares of land used for the production of coffee â€“ the other 200 hectares have been set aside for permanent natural forest reserves which is six times more than the legal requirement under Brazilian law.
The most interesting factor though has got to be Wagners commitment to research. He has planted over 200 varietals of coffee on his farm, many of which are experimental plots, and he is working in line with the Brazilian Coffee Research Institute to experiment with processing and Flavour. As a result of Wagner's unique approach to farming, he won the coveted "Globo Rural" award for being the "Most Sustainable Perennial Farmer in Brazil in 2014 - an extremely prestigious accolade considering the thousands of farms that entered the competition and the fierce level of judging.
Wagner was awarded this prize based on his approach to food safety and environmental and social responsibility. Along with the local school, Pantano also funds training schemes and courses for its staff and runs programmes on agronomy for local school children so that they are educated in how to grow their own vegetables and potentially become the coffee farmers of the future!
