Everything you want to know


The Fazenda Rainha has belonged to the Carvalho Dias family since 1890. Gabriel de Carvalho Dias, grandson of the owner, is the manager of the farm, which is located exactly on the border with the State of Minas Gerais, and has the characteristics of the mountainous regions of Mogiana and South Minas. The plantations are managed manually, because the local topography does not allow any type of mechanization. Social and environmental aspects are considered fundamental for the management of the farm.

Of the 484 hectares, only 190 are used for coffee plantations. The company is located at an altitude between 1100 and 1500 meters above sea level, enjoys an average annual rainfall between 1800 and 2000 mm, and an average temperature of 19°C, ideal climatic conditions for the growth of coffee.

This coffee is of the Yellow Bourbon variety which is famous for its exceptional quality, and is processed with the Pulped Natural method. The coffee is harvested by hand and the beans are transferred to the processing area as soon as possible, always on the same day as the harvest to avoid any risk of fermentation. Once the ripeness is reached, the coffee is immediately washed and the drupes are selected according to their size and density, separating the dried drupes from the rest of the harvest. Only the ripe cherries are then depulped and the beans, which are still covered in parchment and a layer of mucilage, are then dried in the sun until they reach 20% of humidity. They are then dried in automatic dryers to further reduce the humidity to the correct level before export (11 %).

The work done by Queen Helena Mello de Carvalho Dias and her family for the growth of the highest quality coffee, has ensured that the coffee grown in this Fazenda has been one of the finalists of the Brazilian Cup of Excellence in various editions.

In the cup it has a good round body combined with an exceptional sweetness and a pleasantly balanced acidity. Notes of caramel, chocolate and hazelnut biscuits that are also found in the aftertaste.
