Fazenda Eldorado

Owned by Laerce França Faleiros, this farm has been in the family for nearly 100 years! 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 values 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.

Fazenda Santa Mônica

Fazenda Santa Mônica is an extension of the family business and belongs to Laerce’s sons, Jean Vilhena Faleiros and Elvis Vilhena Faleiros.

In 2013 Mr. Laerce and his children took the farms to new innovative heights. Elvis has worked hard to grow strong relationships with farming communities throughout Alta Mogiana, exploring possibilities for new varietals and outlining templates for exceptional quality and specialty coffee growth within the region. Jean runs the daily farm operations with a passion that has led him to grow new botanical varieties 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.
