This coffee is from Fazenda Passeio located in prime specialty coffee country in the heart of Sul de Minas. The farm’s 130 hectares of plantations lie between 1,100 and 1,200 metres above sea level, in a mountainous area with excellent soil fertility and regular rains.

Description

Fazenda Passeio is located in the southern part of Minas Gerais, where an abundance of specialty coffees are grown. Headed by Adolfo Henrique Vieira Ferreira, the estate focuses on not only the production of fine coffees, but the preservation of the surrounding environment. Currently, 130 hectares are devoted to the production of coffee. The coffee is picked by hand. This can be quite rare for Brazil.

The production method used is pulp natural processing. Widely used in Brazil, this process means the ripe cherries are pulped and most of the mucilage remains close to the parchment, generating a clean and mild cup, with a pleasant acidity that is free from unripe beans and has characteristic sweetness. The coffee is pulped the same day to avoid the possibility of fermentation. It is then dried on the patio for a few days before it is placed in the mechanical drier to finish. The coffee is rested for 45-60 day and then sorted to eliminate defects before it is readied for export.
