Fazenda Serrinha is the very first farm of the Our Coffees family purchased by Jose Maria in 2004. Everything on the farm, Jose constructed with his bare hands, including the very first light post on the property. The main house on the farm is located on Fazenda Serrinha where Jose Maria and his family resides.
The farm is home to the drying patios, raised beds, wet mill, silos, orchard, garden, and horse stables. The farm is 140 hectares and is responsible for producing “Our Sugar” collection, which is a showcase of our honey processed coffees. Our technique of depulping the coffee cherries and drying the bean covered mucilage is done through a very methodical process. Our objective behind Our Sugar collection is pure balance. Our method of processing and electing the ideal spot on our farm allows us the ability to cultivate a coffee that is not only consistent, but delivers both a well rounded balanced acidity and milk chocolate sweetness.
