The family farm coffee producers from Venda Nova do Imigrante, ES, have adopted the pulping technology to improve Arabic coffee quality. The objective of this paper is to identify the adoption determinants of the pulping technology by the coffee producers. The Logit model is applied for data analysis. The pulping technology adoption is determined by the variables: coop affiliation, years of school, own capital stock, yield, profitability and training. The variables with greater marginal impact on coffee pulping technology adoption are: profitability, coop affiliation and training.
