FAZENDA SAO JOSE
Located in the region of Sul De Minas, Fazenda São José is perfectly situated to grow coffee in this mountainous region. During harvest coffee is manually collected when the cherry reaches maturation. Once picked, the coffee is laid out on patios and turned every hour until 50% moisture is reached. The coffee is then collected in thicker piles to allow it to dry down to 11.5% moisture. The process can last up to 21 days. Once dried, it is then stored in wooden hoppers for 20 days to rest and equalise.
