Fazenda São Judas Tadeu lies outside the small town of Piatã in Bahia’s Chapada Diamantina region, at an altitude of 1,300 to 1,380 metres above sea level. Piatã is a very unique and privileged coffee growing region in Brazil, with high altitudes and temperatures that vary from 2°C to 18°C in the winter. These factors, combined with the area’s rich soil and growing conditions, present favourable conditions for producing high-quality coffee with a cup profile that is very bright, transparent, and distinctive.

The owner of Fazenda São Judas Tadeu Antônio Rigno tries to farm in the most sustainable way as possible, keeping his use of chemical pesticides to a minimum and recycling coffee pulp to use as fertiliser.

Antônio has invested in modern processing facilities, including a wet mill and both conventional and covered patios. He ensures cherries are picked by hand only when fully ripe, with two passes a day during the peak of the harvest. A dedicated team of ten people process the coffee at the mill with great care. “We treat every single lot like it has the potential to be a 90+ coffee” he explained.
