OUR INCREDIBLE PRODUCERS.
All of our unique coffees begin on the farms. These are the amazing individuals and families who grow, pick, process and help us select your coffees. We are so honored to work with them and truly cherish our longstanding, beautiful friendships!
Sérgio & Raquel Meirelles
Fazenda Capucho - Chapada de Minas - Capelinha, Minas Gerais
Sérgio and Raquel are like family---and that makes it so easy to work with them. With more than 20 coffee varieties on their two (2) farms, we can always expect some fascinating coffees every harvest.
Natália Brito & André Garcia (Jaguara Coffee)
Santa Lucia Farm - Sul de Minas - Três Corações, Minas Gerais
We visit Natália and André each year at their farm in Três Corações and their lab in Varginha. We are always looking for "crazy" coffees from them---whether it is through their unique fermentation processes or award-winning varieties.
Cristiene, Kátia and The Martins Family
Pico do Boné Farm - Matas de Minas - Araponga, Minas Gerais
Cristiene and her family have a jaw-dropping farm in the wondrous micro-climate of Araponga. It is so high that they literally have to "climb" up through the farm to hand-pick their beautifully red and yellow cherries. We love going to their farm and helping with the harvest---or simply meeting in Belo Horizonte to have a few beers.
Rosa & Deneval Vieira
Sítio Cordilheiras - Caparaó Region - Iúna, Espírito Santo
Rosa and husband Deneval have a small farm in the iconic Caparaó Region of Espírito Santo (our one relationship outside of the state of Minas Gerais!). We spent days on their farm, getting to know the terrain, varieties and Atlantic Rainforest that cuts right through their farm. This year, we are working with Deneval on a new project involving more drought-tolerant and disease-resistant varieties.
Rafael Marques Araujo
Fazendas Araujo - Matas de Minas - Manhuaçu, Minas Gerais
We have known Rafael for so many years! Our first coffee we ever brought in from Brazil was a spectacular, juicy Natural from Rafael's Araujo Farm. We are incredibly stoked to be working with Rafa and his family, in a much greater capacity!
