Situated in one of the most prime growing regions of Brazil, Fazenda Eldorado has been producing high quality coffee for decades. This family-run farm owned by Jean Vilhena and Elvis Vilhena, they value a holistic approach to crop management by using organic compost from their own farmland to ensure the quality of the product, while maintaining the microbial life in the soil. Jean runs the daily farm operations with a passion that has led him to grow new botanicalvarieties such as Bourbon and Arara. He also introduced new techniques for flavour development at the coffee cleaning and drying stages (pulp natural and raised beds) and organic fertilizing techniques that are built in the farm. Since 2010 the family farms shifted its focus from large-scale efficiency to aiming for specialty coffee. The move was highly successful and rewarding, placing them as winners of the Alta Mogiana Competition and high rankings in the Cup of Excellence many times in the last decade.
