Sítio da Torre, located in the city of Carmo de Minas, is situated in the Mantiqueira de Minas Geographical Indication, in what is called the Circuito das Águas region of the Sul de Minas Gerais, which is internationally known for the quality of its mineral water reservoirs, with exceptional climate and the beauty of its mountainous scenery, with coffee planed at elevations varying from 1100 to 1300 meters, uniting the ideal conditions for producing specialty coffees. A set of soils, climate and elevation, together with the centennial tradition of coffee growing, enables the production of the nest coffees in Brazil. We produce quality coffees, never forgetting to preserve the environment, as we are certain that the integration of man and the environment provides us with sustainable coffee cultivation.
Coffee processing system
The coffee is harvested by hand and taken to the patio twice per day where it is washed and spread on raised patios, always by identified and traced lots, until it reaches 11.5% moisture. Then it is stored in rest boxes for about 30 days, later it is processed and taken to warehouses at Cocarive (Carmo de Minas Cooperative).
