Fazenda Cafundo was acquired by Pedro Santa Mesquita from a friend in 1989, a quite place where he wished to live together with his family. He invested in coffee cultivation, the strong point of the region, taking advantage of the 1,360 m altitude of the property lands.
Coffee processing system
The altitude and the climate alone already contribute to the coffee plantations. The soil is adequately prepared to receive the nursery trees. Cherry beans are picked selectively, and the coffee is pulped by the wet natural cherry system, always preserving the coffees best properties. Concern with quality Technical monitoring occurs periodically, and soil analyses are carried out so that fertilization is made correctly. Coffee is harvested selectively: it is washed and dry beans, leaves and green beans are separated before the drying process. The dry coffee is processed and appropriately stored in order to maintain its quality.
