The “Fazenda Santo Antônio” coffee has been cultivated for generations, in a sustainable way, in the traditional coffee region of Mococa. We provide a product of excellent quality, for the consumer to enjoy the best coffee.
The “Fazenda Santo Antônio” has its own microroasting plant, where the coffees are carefully roasted and packaged in the form of whole bean, ground and artisanal capsules.
The roasting profile follows specific standards to enhance the quality, aromas, flavors and sweetness of the selected beans. This way we offer the highest quality coffee directly from the Farm to the consumer’s table.
Care in the production of the “Fazenda Santo Antônio” coffee in charge of the family agronomist, graduated from the UNESP Campus of Jaboticabal.
It all starts with selecting the best cultivars that are planted in areas above 800 m in altitude. The spacing of the coffee trees in each plot is defined according to the topographical characteristics of the area to avoid self-shading or excessive insolation.
The cultural dealings follow the best practices recommended by specialists. Every year, soil samples are taken from all coffee plots and analyzed to define soil correction and nutrient replacement. Scrubbing, proper management of weeds, pests and diseases follows the model of sustainability and seeks to respect the environment.
Harvesting is always planned in detail in order to obtain a high-quality coffee. It is done manually and carefully on the cloth.
After harvesting the coffee is washed and cleaned for the elimination of impurities and separation of the fruits with different densities for a uniform drying.
Pre-drying is carried out in paved brick-areas and final drying is performed in mechanical dryers, preserving coffee quality. The specialty coffees are dried in “raised beds”.
The coffee is stored in special wood containers until it is processed.
