Description

Translate
The Andrade family history began in 1901, with their ancestors at Capim Branco Farm, in Carmo do Paranaíba, High Cerrado, state of Minas Gerais. With the aim to produce high quality coffees, the new generation of Andrade family established their farms in this region during the 70’s.

This region has an altitude between 1.100 and 1.200 meters, which provides ideal conditions for growing coffee due to its perfect balance of wet and dry seasons. In the early 90´s, with the need for expansion of coffee production, quality and volume improvement, the brothers acquired São Silvestre farm in Serra do Salitre, state of Minas Gerais. This farm produces high quality coffees because of its terroir and average altitude of 1.200 meters. Combined with the natural conditions of the region, the correct management of crops, crop planning and post-harvest with selection criteria of cherries, grains and natural drying, the results are excellent quality, award-winning beans, appreciated worldwide.
