The Vieira Ferreira family has specialised in coffee production for three generations and is now headed by Adolfo Vieira Ferreira. Adolfo's attention to detail and commitment to producing top class speciality coffee is second to none. In order to guarantee quality, the farm employs a high number of skilled workers to carry out most of the production process by hand - from soil preparation for planting, to hand picking of the ripe cherries. In return, the farm looks after its workers. Permanent workers and their families live on site, and are provided with schooling for their children, professional training, and environmental education.
The farm takes environmental sustainability seriously and abides by all Brazilian environmental protection laws. Its native forests are set aside as protected reserves and are often visited by tourists, school children and ecologists. The farm also regularly plants new trees, particularly around its water sources, in order to maintain the local ecosystem.
Fazenda Passeio cultivates several different coffee varietals - including Mundo Novo, Catuaí, Acaiá, Icatú, and Bourbon. This particular coffee is a 100% Bourbon, which is harvested and processed separately from other lots to maintain its own distinct characteristics.
