This “Pulped Natural Processed” Yellow Bourbon coffee from the Fazenda Furnas, is cultivated on a piece of land with high potential for specialty coffees.
Rinaldo de Castro Junqueria (aka Pipoca) is the owner of the 280-hectare Fazenda Furnas, on which 200 hectares are planted in coffee. There are Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Catucai, and both Yellow and Red Catuai planted on the farm, which also grows some bananas. Rinaldo’s great-grandfather was a laborer on a coffee farm, and his grandfather was the first in the family to own a coffee farm, which was inherited in segments to the family.
Fazenda Furnas was also one of the first facilities to experiment with Pulped Natural processing.
