Sagrado Coracao de Jesus Ranch is located at three kilometers from the city of Carmo de Minas, in the South of Minas. Its house is found in a valley, among mountains, and the coffee crops are found at altitudes that vary from 3608 to 4494 feet. Mr. Alvaro Antonio Pereira Colis parents raised the family trough the coffee plantation on their farm until 1995, when they donated the property to their children that together decided to carry on with the coffee production.
Coffee processing system
All the harvest is done by hand, over clothes, to avoid the contact of the coffee beans with the ground. The chosen coffee is washed and pulped in the same day of the harvest. The drying is done only on patios so that it can be slow and homogenous, and after a long time of rest, the coffee is processed and stored in warehouses from the Cocarive, where the testers do the analysis of the quality.
Commitment to quality
Technicians and classifiers from COCARIVE and EMATER MG, both located in Carmo de Minas, supervise the search for modernization and improvement of the techniques, mainly in the preparation of special coffees. It is a hard task that requires a lot of work, care and investments on hand labor. However, it is very rewarding when we see the soil producing the green gold (as the coffee was called long time ago), with recognized quality. Taking into consideration the importance of the environmental preservation, the producer is certain that and integration between the man and the environment provides a sustainable coffee production and with a higher quality.
