Owner Ademir Francisco Pereira’s parents planted their first plot of coffee in 1994 and the Pereira family has been growing coffee every since. Ademir himself was born and raised on Fazenda Bela Vista. In 2010, Ademir began focusing on specialty production and the added value from high quality processing has greatly improved their lives.
Ademir and his family harvest cherry and lay it to dry on raised beds. They rake cherry frequently to ensure even drying.
Just under 40% of all coffee in the world is produced in Brazil - around 3.7 million metric tons annually. With so much coffee produced, it’s no wonder that the country produces a wide range of qualities. Brazil produces everything from natural Robusta, to the neutral and mild Santos screen 17/18, to the distinctive Rio Minas 17/18. In recent years, Brazilian producers have also begun investing more heavily in specialty coffee production.
It's very exciting to be able to bring you this fantastic Micro lot from the Fazenda Bela Vista Farm.
