Coffee processing system
Processing is natural. The coffee is picked at the perfect stage of maturation, presenting a maximum of 10% green coffee cherries. After the harvest, the coffee passes through a bean selector to create the micro-lots. When the coffee comes from the fields, it goes through equipment that removes sticks, straw, stones and beans with full defects, as well as leaves. The objective of this first selection is to have only ideal fruits, through color selection (analyzing close to 160 points on the surface of the fruit), will be separated into green, ripe and overripe/dry (floaters), with three different exit spouts. The difference between this process and the traditional washing and drying process is that no water is used at any moment. This enables the farm to reduce problems with fermentation and increase the quality of the beans by not wearing away the outer skin. It also promotes more uniform drying by not mixing fruits at different stages of maturation.The stage of maturation chosen for this lot was ripe cherry. The lot was fermented for 36 hours in tanks until the mass reached 25°C. Then the coffee was taken to African beds to dry, spread in 30 cm layers for two days. The drying is slower, resulting in a higher-quality and more uniform coffee, with exotic, fruity notes. The improved aeration better inhibits the growth of undesirable microorganisms (fermentation).
Concern about quality
Fazenda Paraíso is extremely concerned with quality. At every stop along the process, there is exceptional control of quality, from production, post-harvest, warehousing and extensive quality control. The sensorial profile and traceability of each plot on the farm is known. This is fundamental and directly affects the quality of the product, resulting in a high-quality, consistent product for consumers.
History of the farm
The history of the Andrade family in the production of and love for coffee began in 1901, when the producer’s ancestors arrived in Carmo do Paranaíba, in the high Cerrado Mineiro region of Minas Gerais. In the 1970s, the Andrade brothers, the third generation of the family, reestablished coffee farms in the region.Fazenda Paraíso is one of the oldest in the region. The farm has well-defined seasons, an altitude of around 1100 m.a.s.l. and balanced rain and heat. Nature does its job, and the brothers learned from their ancestors that the least they could do is respect the environment, thus they always strive to preserve it as well as possible.

Roasted to order
Our beans are roasted to order as we want to produce the best to our coffee drinkers. We currently roast twice a week on Tuesday and Sundays. When orders are received before 5pm on the day prior to the roasting day, we will send out the coffee within 3 working days from the date of roast. We cup the coffees after each roast before we bag them, hence we can only send out the beans earliest on the following day after the roast. You will receive an email/sms notification when the coffee is sent. Do let us know if you did not receive your order.
For orders before Tuesday 5pm , your orders will be sent out on Wednesday.
For orders before Sunday 5pm, your orders will be sent out on Monday. No coffees will be sent on weekends since the Post Office will not handle any incoming mails, but all orders will be posted out on Mondays instead.
