History of the farm:
Fazenda Pedra II, which belongs to the familial group Santa Rosa Estate Coffee, is located in the city of Soledade de Minas, 15 km from Carmo de Minas, the production region of the finest and most award-winning coffees of Mantiqueira de Minas. The high-elevation tropical climate, fertile and well-drained soils together with perfect processing installations make the Santa Rosa group a model of specialty coffee production.
Acquired in 1986 by the current owners, at the time an uncultivated area, after 20 years of hard work and dedication, it has been transformed into a specialty coffee Santa Rosa Estate Coffee’s processing installations represent the most modern preparation technology: wet processing with green bean separation technology, paved patios for pre-drying, rotating dryers, and 10 wooden rest boxes for the individual handling of the production lots. The coffees produced on the farm rest in these rest boxes before their final preparation. The administration of the farm is the role of the owners who follow the production procedures step-by-step. Producing specialty coffees is the result of personal dedication and this is not lacking at Santa Rosa.
Concern about quality:
The harvested coffee is processed and placed on the drying patio on the same day. At the beginning of the drying, they are placed in thin layers to dry faster. The layers get thicker as the coffee dries. When it reaches the correct humidity, the coffee rests in wooden rest boxes. After 60 days of rest, we send it to the Cooperative of Carmo de Minas, where it is classified and tested.
