The farm was first planted in the 1970's by José Humberto de Andrade who was one pf the pioneers of coffee in this region. The farm is now run mainly by Sanda and her nephew Lucas Santos. The altitude provides hot sunny days and long cool nights that give the coffee its unique profile balancing flavour and body. They are very focused on maintaining the farm ensuring they are renovating and regenerating areas each year.
This lot is a Red Catuai that is harvested between July - September and is mechanically picked.

After this the coffee is then left for 30 days to rest in the dry parchment before it can then be milled and sorted for export.
