The Barbosa family has been cultivating coffee since the 1900s, when current owner Danilo Barbosa’s great-grandfather, Elias Barbosa, purchased the farm. Three generations later, the family is as dedicated as ever. Danilo and his sons and daughters work together to produce and export their harvests. 

Fazenda D'barbosa produces an assortment of specialty-grade coffees, all of which are farmed using sustainable methodologies. The farm prides itself on providing a healthy environment for local wildlife, and they recently demarcated 186 hectares of their land as a nature preserve. 

After harvest, fresh cherry is delivered to the farm’s processing center and  laid to dry in parabolic drying beds. Parchment is turned frequently to ensure even drying.
