Sustainable Coffee Production System toward high efficiency and enviroment preservation.
1) Precise Agriculture - each one hectare is farmed as a single and specific piece of land. The soil samples are taken, analysed and the gps connected machines apply extacly how much input is needed. Much less input has been used nowadays.
2) Grass management system - a suitable grass is planted betewen the coffee rows and it is cultivated during the all year long. The grass is cut only at once for the harvest process. This system avoid CO2 release and the erosion; keep the soil wet; provide a much better microclimate for the trees and animals; and, build up a balanced soil.
3) all springs, bushes and forests are preserved; no pouching is allowed;
Natural Lado a Lado - special preparation 7 pictures
The Natural Lado a lado process is done striclty in this way: 1) selective hand picked mature cheeries are sent straight to the patio – no water tank contact; 2) 1st drying stage: during the first 3 days, the cherries remain untoched in a thin layer (side by side) in order to have the free water taken quickly out, avoinding unwanted fermentations; 3) 2nd drying stage – the cherries are put in a thicker layer and they are moved carefully at around 10 times a day for more 5-7 days; 4) the last drying stage is carried out in the drier machines under max temperatures of 37ºC. At this stage, the water molecules are strongly bound to the cells of the beans. So, it is necessary to remove these water very slowly.
