Histroy Continuing the family's tradition (Fabiano de Carvalho Resende Filho's grandfather was a coffee buyer in the 50s), Fabiano bought the farm in 1987, when there was only one small coffee plantation with 5,000 trees. Over time and with more investments in quality coffee production, the plantation how has 65,000 trees. Mineral water sources, a small waterfall and over 50% of the property covered with the Atlantic Rain Forest and not touched by men complete the farm's landscape, located in a region known for its natural wealth and its waterfalls, sanctuary of Brazilian plants and wild animals.
Coffee processing system
Coffee is picked selectively (only the cherry beans), and transferred to be pulped, demucilaged and dried on a covered terrace (hot house), suspended terrace and dryer. Subsequently, it is bagged and stored in pergamino in bins at the property. Concern with quality To ensure a high quality coffee, the several stages are monitored with plenty of dedication, among which: plantation upkeep; sanitation of the covered terraces; handling on the terrace, where the coffee is spread in thin layers and rotated frequently; as well as using a drier at an appropriate temperature. The repercussions and acknowledgement of the efforts of coffee producers who opt for quality was the reasons that stimulated the producers' interest in taking part in contests. To add value, it is the fourth year that the farm is producing pulped natural coffees.
