Fazenda Guariroba Santuario Black Honey CM2
Fazenda Guariroba began working with the Santuario Project back in 2016, an organization seeking to process coffees in new and innovative ways to highlight the exquisite tastes Brazilian coffees. Edwin Noreña, the quality manager for Santuario, was assisting Gabriel at Fazenda Guariroba with his processing methods. This allowed coffee from the farm to win various places at Brazil’s Cup of Excellence competitions.
It was in 2022 when the two joined forces to produce coffees together under the Santuario brand.
Coffee was introduced to the country back in the early 18th century, which rapidly spread throughout Brazil, making it the leading producer of coffee worldwide.
Additionally, Brazil is the only country to utilize mechanized harvesting tools to assist with the extensive coffee fields. The flat topography of the country allows for the ease of machines to slowly comb through the coffee trees and remove ripe cherries. Advanced agricultural technology has allowed for the even harvesting of cherries and prevents uneven harvesting.
Today, the well-known coffee producing regions are Espirito Santo, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, and Bahia.
