Selectively hand-picked by husband-wife team Jose Paulo and Dulciniea “Dulce” Borges since ‘71, this bean is grown in an ideal microclimate on tiny parcel of land known as Sitio Pinherinho or ‘Little Pine Tree’.
What makes this farm truly special is that Dulce was born blind but has never feared the future. Dulce sees her blindness as an opportunity: “Vision from the heart is much more important than vision from the eyes. The heart sees everything, while the eyes only see.”
