History of the farm

Fazenda Sao Silvestre was bought by producer Ismael Jose de Andrade and his brother Eduardo Eustaquio Andrade in the beginning of the 90s. The climate and elevation of the lands are conducive to producing high-quality COE’s. Thus, when these natural conditions of the region are combined with good management, culture planning and post-harvest processing with criteria for coffee cherry selection, the result is excellent quality COE’s, appreciated around the world.

Coffee processing system

Processing is natural and Pulped Natural. The coffee is picked at the perfect stage of maturation, presenting a maximum of 10% green coffee cherries. After picking harvest, the coffee goes through the dry method. When the coffee comes from the fields, it goes through the following treatment: first dry beans ( floaters) are selected, then unripe cherries and ripe cherries are separated.

After the beans are selected, the coffee is taken to the African bed, where the drying is slower, resulting in a higher-quality and more uniform coffee. The improved aeration better inhibits the growth of undesirable microorganisms (fermentation). 

Concern about quality 

The farm is extremely focused on quality. It takes pride in each detail in the production process, until the final destination. Care begins with the production process and continues through post-harvest, warehousing and excessive quality control. Each plot has its own sensory profile and completes traceability. This is fundamental and has a direct effect on the quality of the product, giving our customers a consistent, high-quality product. 

The producers and their team are always seeking ways in which to further improve quality. Thus, since last year, they have been investing in research to improve drying processes. African beds and greenhouses have been installed on the farm, and positive results have already been seen in the cup.
