Sitio dos Estouros was acquired by Mr. Palmerindo Miranda in 1947. He left it as an inheritance to his children. Currently, Mr. Jose Mauro Miranda, coffee producer, manages this part of the farm. Sitio dos Estouros has four water sources and a river with a magnificent waterfall, which crosses the whole property. The land is rough with altitudes varying between 900 and 1,200 meters. It has a reforested area of 6 hectares. The whole watercourse is protected by ciliary woods.
Coffee processing system
Coffee is picked manually, in order to generate jobs. After the coffee is picked it is washed, and subsequently it is transferred to the cherry pulper. The water used during this phase is totally recycled using a settling tank. In sequence, the beans are transferred to the cemented and suspended terraces to dry, there they are separated according to quality. After the quality selection, the lots are maintained separated in warehouses. Concern with quality Mr. Jose Mauro Miranda is always seeking new ways to improve the quality of the coffees grown at Sitio dos Estouros, from planting to harvesting. Sitio dos Estouros is a member of the Associacao dos Produtores de Cafes Especiais de Araponga (above 1000 m altitude), which promotes courses and lectures for its members to improve the quality of the coffees they produce.
