In total, Guima covers 1,650 hectares, 900 hectares of which are coffee farmland and 346 of which are dedicated to native vegetation and the preservation of Cerrado flora and fauna.
The Guima Café brand was established with the goal of producing high-quality coffees through a variety of environmentally focused best practices, including reduced energy and water consumption, more modern equipment with lower diesel consumption, more efficient use of fertilizers, the increased use of “green” fertilizers and turning agricultural “waste” into new products.
The estate also experiments with drought-tolerant and more productive and better-tasting varieties; precision agriculture; data-driven management decisions and new post-harvest techniques. Plus, it’s Utz and Rainforest Alliance certified.
Guima also supports community gardening, cultural activities and environmental education programs in its community. It has 90 permanent employees and approximately 200 temporary workers during the harvest season.
Coffees are processed on the farm as natural or pulped natural and are dried on patios, raised beds and in drying machines.
