History of the farm
This story begins in 2001, when Robson Vilela bought the property. The first coffee trees were planted in 2004 and the first harvest came three years later. At the time, Robson did not have the infrastructure to prepare his own coffee. Shortly after, he found another property ready to be used as a mill to process the beans near the first property. Facing all of the challenges that new projects involve, his undertaking was successful. He sent samples from his first harvest to Cup of Excellence® in 2007 and was a finalist, placing seventh. One of the differentials on the farm is having the same workers for a long period of time. With a much smaller team compared to other properties in the region, Robson offers the best working conditions possible. His objective is to foster good relationships and trust among the workers. Today worker turnover is almost non-existent, which directly influences the quality and efficiency of production. These measures result in more efficient labor, which merges with the quality processes and makes up the body and soul of Fazenda São Pedro.The increasing quality and the investments made in infrastructure and equipment have resulted in coffees with better prices and higher volumes. Bananas, planted among the coffee fields, are good for shade in the fields and for quality organic material, in addition to diversifying income and providing food for the workers.
Coffee processing system
Coffee is dried on the patio for 3 days and then finished in the mechanical dryer.
Concern about quality
Waste is disposed of property and trees are planted.
