The Story begun in 1947 when 'Sitio Santo Antonio do Prado' an estate of 28 Hectares was acquired by Edio Miranda and his wife Maria Aparecida Milagres Miranda. From a land that had no usage, the couple turned it into their major source of income with the coffee production as well as a place for the family to leisure as its located inside a national park ( Parque Estadual da Serra do Brigadeiro ). Since they are dedicated to quality improvement and have been awarded at regional coffees competitions. The property is located on the mountains and the picking is done manually.
The picked cherries are directed to African beds where the unripe ones are manually removed. Once the lot has reached the ideal humidity level, its cupped by Edio who determines the coffee profile and goes to storage for the post drying phase. Edio is very concerned about making the production as sustainable as possible, caring for the maintenance of the soil, preservation of the rivers and local species by keeping green runways along the property.
Best Consumed: 7-30 days post roast date
