EL DORADO

Fazenda El Dorado’s coffee is prepared in an environmentally friendly manner. Crop management and the harvest are done by hand with the help of machinery. After being picked, the beans are taken to the patios, where they are spread to dry under the sun. When they reach 11% humidity, the beans are taken to wooden rest boxes where they rest for at least 30 days.
