“The tradition of coffee production has been in the Barbosa family since the twentieth century. Mr Barbosa’s ancestors, his great-grandparent Elias Barbosa, passed it on to his grandparent Claudio Barbosa de Paula and from him to his father, Jairo Barbosa de Paula and now Mr. Barbosa works with his generation, his sons Vítor Marcelo and Sergio Ricardo. When I say family business, I mean husband, wife, father, son, and daughter in law all working together, so the office is like a big home where everybody shares the same dream, supporting each other, learning and growing together. The office is located in Carmo do Paranaíba, Estate of Minas Gerais, where the team is composed of ten people, cooperating to deliver the best coffee.”
“Danilo is the owner and manager; his first harvest was in 79/80 crops. The success led him to develop the activity and growth of the explored area, acquirement of new farms and introduction of new harvest technologies. Nowadays the producer has 490 hectares of coffee plantation, which are carefully assisted by him, his son and the quality control team. The producer is associated with cooperatives which, in many ways provide information on the coffee market, quality, and courses. For the past two years, the farmer has concentrated countless efforts on the improvement of the production processes and management. Danilo has always shown concern for the environment and has always taken care of nature, today he adds more than 186 hectares of the nature reserve. At the present, plans are been executed in order to certify the properties, to learn more on how to preserve the environment and to produce a 100% sustainable coffee.”
Finally, coffee with character!
I bought a selection of coffees from Redber based on a friend’s recommendation. I was fed up, and frankly bored, with the vast majority of coffees available locally. I no longer intend shopping elsewhere for my coffees now. Redber’s varieties are wonderful, a real variety of strength of flavours and complexities. I think I have rediscovered my love of coffee.
Have reviewed this before and I really like it - the best of your Brazilians that I have tried so far. Just hope the price stays within reach and the frosts have not changed it's character too much.
beautiful berry / wine notes and one of the most unique flavours on offer from Redber
Excelent beens, fresh roast and amazing caramel flavour with my one of fav fruit. Really tasty!
Smooth and creamy- as you say! A lovely alternative to my absolute favourite - El Salvador Diamante -. Your service at Redber deserves six stars!!
