ASDDS

P&A/Pinhalense and TravelBox in partnership with the African Fine Coffees Association offer this incredible opportunity to experience all aspects of coffee growing, harvesting and processing thought guided visits to relevant Arabica and Robusta coffee producing areas in Brazil.

The group will witness successful cases of small and medium-sized coffee growers, which have managed to increase coffee productivity to levels above the Brazilian national average of 23 bags/hectare (Arabica) and 30 bags/hectare (Robusta/Conilon).  There will also be an organized visit to Pinhalense, world leading coffee processing equipment manufacturer, to see how the machines are designed and assembled.

Visitors will have a chance to see the day-to-day operations of the typical Brazilian coffee farm including the production techniques employed, the harvesting technologies used, including hand-held harvesters, the processing stages and equipment required (in order to obtain natural, semi-washed and washed coffees) and many other factors that contribute to higher performance, yields, and quality of coffee and sustainability of the grower.

For a group of 5 participants, the price payable (subject to change) is: US$ 3.640,00 per person.
