Paraíso farms receive this name because of a stream in the region that cuts through a huge aquifer park located at the top of Serra da Mata da Corda – belonging to the Paranaíba River basin.
The farms are 100% irrigated by a drip system that captures water from dams and reservoirs. The farms have individual administrative bases, a small repair workshop, and a post-harvest structure with a wet mill and a pulper, patio, dryers, hulling machines, and wooden silos. The property is also one of the oldest coffee-producing areas in the region.
natural Controlled Fermentation: Veloso Coffee has a structure dedicated to the production of specialty coffee, with 6 fermentation tanks of 6 thousand liters, 200 liters’ barrel, greenhouse, and raised bed. And during the mapping phase, we sort the plots and the best are directed to this structure; also during the mapping, fermentation tests are carried out in batches of 20 liters in order to choose which ones will be directed to the tanks. With this result in hand, the plots are monitored and harvested with a maximum of 5% green fruits, these coffees pass through the wet mill to remove impurities, the ripe fruits go to the tanks, the fermentation time varies according to the profile desired taking into account the parameters, temperature, Brix and PH. These fermentations can be in closed or open tanks, with water or dry, with the addition of yeast or natural strain, reuse of must, the addition of fruit, among others … each batch has a history…
After the fermentation process, these coffees are sent to the drying patio, stirred by hand, and intermittent drying which can take 30 to 40 days to reach the desired point, when they are sent to rest 20 to 30 days before the benefit.
