Agronol, a renowned quality producer, uses state-of-the-art technology
in our specialty coffee crops on the highlands of western Bahia. Perfect
climate, comprehensive irrigation and selection of the best Arabica varieties
(Catuai, Catucai and Bourbon) combine to generate outstanding results:
shorter production cycle, uniform blossom and maturation, world class
productivity and superb quality.
Eight million trees spread across 3,700 acres yield 100,000 bags of fine
coffee per year. Without the risk of drought or frost, annual average
production has been kept at these levels over the years. Modern harvesting
and processing technology ensures a rigorous maturation-based bean selection.
Gigantic sun drying grounds, wooden silos and last generation process
equipment allow our coffee to be exported directly from the farm.
Fazenda Agronol is also a large fruit producer: 1,730 acres of papaya
and 1,235 acres of citric fruit. High quality fruit sold at the demanding
European market establishes alternative sources of income, additional
jobs and year-round employment for the families living on our farm.
