Farm: Nossa Senhora

Janaina is the master of a high altitude farm in Mantiquira de Minas, where the soils are rich.
The region is comprised of 7000 coffee growers with an annual output of 1 million bags, and these means various coffees that we have access to. In 2011, became the first region to obtain the GeographicalIndication seal for coffee, which indicates that coffees produced in this region have unique qualities and features that are essentially attributed to their origin
Janaina has been part of the AMECAFE Women’s producer group since 2017. This group is formed of 50 members who meet
on a monthly basis to share knowledge and educate each other about coffee production. They want to empower each other and their families by improving the quality of their lives through coffee. I wag my tail thinking how these hot Brazilians are gathering now in dance steps for their second harvest. Janaina lives on their small farm with her husband Edson where they are putting all they are learning into practise on the farm.
During the harvest the coffees is collected manually before being placed on the patios for between 7 – 10 days until the coffee reached below 11% moisture. The coffee is turned every 2-3 hours during the day to ensure an even drying.
I haven’t found out if they have dogs at their farm, but if they want a piece of advice, here are my contact details:
