The coffee story
I named this lot after the complex because it is where our rebenefício warehouse, the biggest post-harvest structure and office we have inside this complex. The Paraíso farm is located in the municipality of Carmo do Paranaíba, Cerrado Mineiro, and received its name from a local stream that cuts an enormous aquifer park based at the top of the Serra da Mata da Corda. The aquifer belongs to the Paranaíba River basin.
My family has been involved in coffee since 1975. Back then, my father Pedro Humberto began buying and warehousing coffee to sell. He had been trading beans up to that point. His decision coincided with the two frosts in the Southern state of Paraná, then the biggest producing region in Brazil, that forced growers to sell their land and move to the Cerrado area in Minas Gerais.

The lot 639/20 comes from the H2 Esqueletado (or Skeleton in English) section. This was the plot’s first production after the skeleton pruning in 2018. We plant our trees in rows in a way that they get exposure to the sunlight evenly during the day. The cherries were very very ripe, almost “passa”, as we call it. And because the flowering had been uniform, maturation was very consistent. We harvested the coffee mechanically in July, when the cherries were practically dried on the tree. There was no need to wash this coffee due to the high percentage of very ripe cherries. After the harvest, the coffee went straight to the patio to be sun-dried for 10 days. It was then rested in coco (inside the dry cherry) for 30 days and then hulled.
