More About
Sao Francisco

Tarcízio Aldo Zugliani bought Fazenda Sao Francisco da Bela Vista in 1993. Over the years, he has made big improvements to the infrastructure of the farm. He built coffee drying terraces and invested in better processing equipment and rotary dryers. He replanted the farm with young seedlings to increase productivity and quality. Through soil analysis, he also determined specific coffee farming methods and improved input efficacy. All these steps increased overall quality and helped produce this Yellow Catuai Pulped Natural lot, which has a classic cupping profile with soft acidity, yellow fruits, chocolate, and a good body.
