Fazenda Serra das Três Barras is located in the rolling mountains of South Minas just outside the small rural town of Carmo de Minas. The region has quite recently become renowned for its award winning quality, producing some of the finest lots Brazil has to offer. The estate has an average elevation of 1300 masl . Tres Barras is now run to producer José Wagner Ribeiro Junqueira, together with his three sons Kleber, Ralph and Herbert de Castro Junqueira and his wife Margarida Maria de Castro Junqueira.
The family’s coffee trees are cultivated in fertile red soils, with elevations varying from 1100 to 1450 meters, and annual rainfalls varying from 1700 to 2200 mm, with well-defined seasons. This particular lot is carefully processed on the farm’s excellent processing facilities without fermentation. The coffee is also hand-picked which is extremely unique for Brazil where labour costs are comparatively high. Coffees are dried firstly on patios and subsequently in drying machines to reach optimal moisture levels before hulling.
