Like many Brazilian producers, agriculture is in Paulo Robert de Oliveira’s blood. However, Paulo grew up on a cattle farm, and only gained experience in coffee when he branched out into his own project, which became Retiro do Cedro. A great deal of perseverance was required in order to aim for quality, but now Paulo and his son consistently produce great coffees on their 2 hectares of land. For the region, this is actually a rather small plot, producing only 80 bags of coffee a year. The other interesting thing about this lot is the varietal. Arara is a naturally occurring cross between Obata and Yellow Catuai, which has grown popular due to its resistance to disease and drought, while retaining high quality characteristics in the cup. The natural process of this lot enhances the typical Brazilian character, dominated by rich sweet chocolate and nut notes.
