This story begins in 1967 when ‘Fazenda Edio Miranda’, an estate of 28 hectares was acquired by Edio Miranda and his wife Maria Aparecida Milagres Miranda. The farm is located inside a national park (Parque Estadual da Serra do Brigadeiro) surrounded by numerous waterfalls and beautiful mountain views. While coffee production dates back for many years, the past 15 years has seen a focus on better post-harvest practice to realise the full potential of their coffees. They are dedicated to quality improvement and have been awarded at regional coffee competitions. Edio and Maria’s children are involved in the production and the coffee processing is done exclusively by the family members on their own property, and picking is manual given the mountainous terrain. Once the lot has reached the ideal humidity level, its cupped by Edio who determines the coffee profile and goes to storage for the post drying phase.
Located at high altitude with ideal climate, the result is coffee of great quality. Additionally, Edio is very concerned about making the production as sustainable as possible, caring for the maintenance of the soil, preservation of rivers and local species by keeping “green runways” along the property. Their main objective is to become a property sustainable in all three aspects: economic, social and environmental. As for the post-harvest, the main objective is to keep the quality of the coffee high by promoting a drying process as slow as possible with strict control of the humidity level to avoid risks of over-fermentation.
