Fazenda Barreiro




Dulce de leche, Milk Chocolate, Almonds

In 1820, Joaquim Bernardes da Costa Junqueira gained a large area of land near Poços de Caldas, which became Fazenda Barreiro. Coffee was not planted until the late 1800s by Joaquim's son, Agostinho. The farm is known for its rich history, culture, cattle breeding program, and eucalyptus farm. The area's rolling hills, climate, and soil make it perfect for high-quality coffee. The great-grandson, Francisco Otávio Lotufo, has focused on environmentally responsible coffee growing and providing support for the farm's staff and the surrounding ecosystem. During harvest, the coffee cherries are picked by hand or machine, washed, and sorted. The freshly pulped coffee is dried on patios and covered terraces before being mechanically dried and hulled. The sorting facilities at Fazenda Barreiro ensure high quality and consistency.
