Inspired by their natural environment and after receiving a plot of land from the farmer they used to work for as labour, Leda and José Edvaldo da Silva have dedicated the past 20 years to the sustainable cultivation of their specialty coffee. With an average altitude of 1,200 meters, the mountainous terrain, and distinct climate at SITIO ROSEIRA leads to favorable conditions for the production of specialty coffee. Leda and Jose strive to preserve their diverse surroundings of natural springs and forests, while producing high quality coffee beans. Their dedication to sustainable farming practices is a high priority. The controlled fermentation is a meticulous process that imparts a rich, dry fruit flavour from the coffee bean and adds to the body of the coffee.
