Natural Coffee (Dry Process)

Natural processing is one of the oldest and most straightforward methods in coffee production. Following harvest, the entire fruit, referred to as cherries, is laid out in the sun on drying patios or raised beds. During this natural drying process, the pulp and outer skin gradually desiccate, forming a tough husk. Once fully dried, the husk is carefully removed, unveiling the coffee beans within.


Located at altitudes between 950 and 1300 meters in Carmo de Minas, in the southern region of Minas Gerais, Fazenda Santa Helena is a haven for lovers of specialty coffees. Framed by the majestic Serra da Mantiqueira, the property stands out not only for its privileged location but also for the quality of the soil and climate, which provide the ideal conditions for the production of exceptional beans.

With a history dating back to the fourth generation of coffee producers, Fazenda Santa Helena prides itself on maintaining traditional cultivation methods. Here, the management of the crop is entirely carried out by farms employees, avoiding mechanization to preserve the integrity of the beans and ensure superior quality. Although this approach may result in higher production costs, demand for the high-quality beans is the reward that validates the dedication to excellence.

In addition to coffee production, the farm also stands out for the preservation of its lush nature. The stunning landscapes and local biodiversity are testaments to the families commitment to sustainability and environmental preservation. At Fazenda Santa Helena, each cup of coffee tells the story of a family tradition rooted in a passion for quality and nature.
