Rinaldo Junqueira owns and operates Fazenda Furnas, an 80 hectare farm located in the Pedralva region of Carmo de Minas. The farm is situated in the highlands, topping out at 1300 meters and planted mainly in Yellow Bourbon and Catuai. Fazenda Furnas has a fairly modern infrastructure replete with a sustainable water recycling set up where water used to process the coffee is collected in a pond onsite which is then returned to be used for farming. This particular lot is natural process coffee. The climate in the area is ideal for producing naturals and this lot exemplifies this, producing a sweet, fruited, and rather 'clean' cup. We noticed a few full quakers in the 200 grams of roasted coffee. They're easily picked out, but honestly, aren't as noticeable in large batch brewing as the coffee has nut tones to begin with. Like most Brazilian coffees the cup quality is bolstered significantly with rest after roasting. We prefer at least 48 hours!
