Coffee processing system
The harvest is done by hand, with the goal of generating jobs. After being picked, the coffee is washed and passes through the huller. The water used in this phase is completely recycled with the use of a settling tank. Next the beans are dried on cement patios or African beds. Then they are separated according to quality. After drying the lots are kept separate in rest boxes and are stored on the farm itself.
Concern about quality
As a philosophy, the owner takes pride in the commendable dedication and technical training of all those involved in producing the high-quality coffee. The farm has won awards in several competitions at the state and national levels for the excellence of its coffee, resulting from responsible technical management that is sensitive to social and environmental matters.
