The varieties currently planted - Mundo Novo and Red and Yellow Catuaí - will soon be joined by 100 acres of Yellow Catuaí. The farm has record coffee yields, well in excess of the country's average. The current coffee production of 7,000 bags will soon reach 12,000 bags.

Mechanical harvesting is carried out in two rounds in order to maximize the percentage of ripe cherries collected. This system is much more efficient than the Brazilian standard practice of one single round of picking. Up to 50% of the crop is processed by the pulped natural system.

Planalto Estate has its own processing facilities to transform coffee cherries into export quality beans. The integrated coffee mill includes a wet line, large drying grounds and export processing equipment. On-farm storage can hold up to 15,000 bags and export containers are loaded on site.
