From the producer, Joao Hamilton:
We produce coffee on our 10-hectare farm at an altitude that ranges from 1200 to 1340 meters above sea level. The varieties we produce are Catuai, Mundo Novo, Sumatra, and Bourbon.
In 2006, (our family was invited) to take part in a new sustainable method in producing coffee. The objective became to achieve the highest quality while simultaneously respecting nature, reforesting the area around our springs, recycling our trash, refraining from utilizing toxic fertilizers and herbicides giving the practice of cultivating coffee a new inspiration and hope.
Our family adopted new processes in order to improve the quality of our coffee. We began to harvest selectively for the ripest cherries, to do semi-washed pulped cherries, and working with more carefulness on the drying patio. We exported for the first time our coffees in 2008.
In 2010 we have invested in building raised beds for the further development of higher quality coffees. Nowadays children from our family are starting to be proud of our region and their work with coffee.
