Fazenda Recreio is a 605-hectare farm with 240 hectares planted in coffee, mostly the Yellow Bourbon variety. The farm has been in the Machaedo family for four generations (founded in 1890) and is currently managed by Diego Machaedo. The land that is not utilized for coffee is used for cattle ranching and growing citrus trees and eucalyptus. Coffee at Fazenda Recreio is processed in several different ways: About 50 percent is Natural, with 25 percent Pulped Natural and 25 percent commercial-grade Washed. Diego Machaedo has a long interest in specialty coffee and sees the production moving more and more in that direction as a primary focus: The farm won the 2004 Cup of Excellence competition and has finished in the top five for many years, including consecutively between 2006–2010.
