Fazenda Passeio lies near the town of Monte Belo in the southern part of Minas Gerais, an area well known for producing some of Brazil's finest coffees. The farm has 130 hectares dedicated to coffee production.
Fazenda Passeio has owned by the Vieira Ferreira family for four generations. The current owner, Adolfo Henrique, puts a strong emphasis on protecting the environment and biodiversity in and around the farm, and on supporting his workers through initiatives such as providing schooling for their children. This coffee is hand picked, which is unusual in Brazil. Handpicking generally results in more evenly ripe cherries going into production. The cherries are pulped the same day as picking to avoid fermentation defects, then dried on patios for a few days before being finished in mechanical dryers.
