FAZENDA PASSEIO
View of Fazenda Passeio Fazenda Passeio is located in a privileged region for fine coffee production in the southern part of Minas Gerais.

COFFEE PRODUCTION
The coffee crop is only picked when the beans are in an advanced maturation stage, in order to eliminate the green beans. The whole picking process is manual, and the coffee is pulped during the same day to avoid any type of fermentation.

After some days drying on the terrace, it is placed in dryers and after it has been dried; it spends at least 60 days resting in wooden bins.
