ALLIE & LENNIE
Allie & Lennie rotates with fresh harvests from our producer network but will always tell stories of my grandmother’s kitchens. It showcases those crops that taste like the pies, cookies, and the treats that I will forever associate with a cup of coffee.
José Dutra Sobrinho started the Dutra farm with a single hectare. He spent his life dedicated to coffee and after 50 years, he had slowly expanded the farm into a sprawling 500 hectare operation. Following his passing, his sons Ednilson and Walter took the farm’s helm. They enrolled in the Illy Coffee’s Università del Caffè in pursuit of expanded understanding of the science and economics of coffee. Armed with deeper knowledge and commitment to quality, the brothers began implementing changes to their production techniques and entering quality contests, as well as achieving multiple certifications (UTZ, 4C) and becoming part of the Brazilian Specialty Coffee Association. This is the Jatoba lot, a name which references the plot’s original farm name.
