Its our third year working with Joao Hamilton and his brother Ivan Dos Santos along with their partner producers at Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza "FAF". The FAF is a family run collective of a few farming families run by Marcos Croce and his two sons Daniel and Felipe.
A few years back they started doing something radically different from most other Brazilian farmers in that they focused on micro lots and in particular monitoring and documenting the entire process from picking through drying. By doing this, they were able, though extensive cupping of their lots, to taste the difference between the variables of production variances.
