The story began in 1947 when ‘Sitio Santo Antonio do Prado’, an estate
of 28 Hectares, was acquired by Edio Miranda and his wife, Maria Aparecida Milagres Miranda. From a land that had no usage, the couple turned it into their primary source of income through coffee production and as well as a place for family leisure, as it is located inside a national park (Parque Estadual da Serra do Brigadeiro). They are devoted to the improvement of quality, with recognition through regional coffee competitions. The property is situated on the mountains, and the picking is all done manually.
The picked cherries are directed to African beds where the unripe ones
are manually removed. Once the lot has reached the ideal humidity level, it
is cupped by Edio who determines the coffee profile and goes to storage for the post-drying phase. Edio is an advocate for improving production sustainability, caring for the maintenance of the soil, and preservation of the rivers and local species by keeping green runways along the property.
