Sitio Sao Pedro

Sitio Sao Pedro is stage 2 of Minas Coffee sustainable farming project, using mix mode and co-operative farming to further job creation through coffee plantations, crops and livestock. The property was one of the first coffee farms of the region and has undergone major revitalisation of its buildings and most importantly its coffee plantation to protect its heritage and long history of coffee farming. 

Co-Operative Farming Project

We believe farmers should have the opportunity to be able to secure year long employment, this can only be achieved by reinvesting in these communities and developing their citizens by providing educational programs.  

Our farmers are our most valuable asset and the ones who implement and take charge of the development of sustainability within our industry and therefore it is crucial that they are rewarded for their contributions.

VARIETALS & PROCESSES

HARVESTING

All harvesting is done manually by expert pickers using selective harvesting followed by strip harvesting, this increases uniformity of harvesting maturity and greater consistency. 

DRYING

All our coffees are dried over the period of 30 day or until 11% moisture is reached, the process is closely monitored to ensure that the coffee isn't exposed to excess temperatures or humidity to ensure a quality drying process. 

MILLING

All milling is done onsite, under the supervision of farm managers to ensure traceability and processes are being followed as per Minas Coffee standards.
