Sitio Sertãozinho, owned by Mr. Paulo Ribeiro Rocha, is located in the city of Cristina, in the south of Minas Gerais, in the Serra da Mantiqueira region. This property, acquired in inheritance from his parents, began coffee cultivation 40 years ago, always seeking quality in the coffee produced. Mr. Rocha is dedicated to growing coffee sustainably preserving the environment. The farm has reserves for preserving springs and native forests, which shelter large plant species and several wild animals.
The harvest is selective, done when the berries are well ripened; they are picked by hand over cloth's, avoiding contact with the ground. On the same day it is picked, the coffee is put into bags and transported to the processing center located on the farm itself. Next, the coffee is washed, and during this process the beans are separated. Next it is dried on cement patios and can, if necessary, go to a dryer for a final drying phase in which it reaches the ideal moisture level. After drying, the coffee is placed in wooden granaries to rest for a period of at least 30 days.
