It began in 1947 when "Sitio Santo Antonio Do Prado" an estate of 28 hectares was acquired by Edio Miranda and his wife Maria Aparecida Milagres Miranda. From a land that had no usage, the couple turned it into their major source of income with the coffee production as well as a place for the family leisure as it is located inside a national park (Parque Estadual De Serra do Brigadeiro) surrounded by numerous waterfalls and beautiful mountain views.
The property is located in the mountains and the picking of cherries is done manually. After the picking of cherries is done, it is then directed to African beds where the unripe ones are manually removed.
Once the lots of coffee have reached its ideal humidity level, it is cupped by Edio who determines the coffee profile and then goes into storage for the post drying phase. Located at a privileged area at higher altitudes, the production is a result of coffees of great quality. Additionally, Edio is also very concerned about making the production as sustainable as possible by caring for and maintaining the agriculture of his coffee plants.
