Fazenda Eldorado is a farm from Laerce França Faleiros, a coffee grower in the municipality of Ibiraci MG, that has been producing coffee in the region for more than 60 years. The region is in the south-east of Minas Gerais, more recently known by Alta Mogiana Mineira, a traditional region that produces some of the best coffees in Brazil due to a combination of altitude and average temperature and terroir imparting a natural sweetness. The altitude in this region ranges from 1080 to 1270 meters above sea level. The total farm production area has little more than 150 hectars, containing several cultivars, such as Red and Yellow Catuai, Acaiá, Mundo Novo, and Catucaí. For years, the family has applied the traditional natural method for dry processing and drying of coffee. In 2013 Mr. Faleiros together with his children shifted the focus from mass production to the production of high quality high grade specialty coffees.
