Coffee Background

Regional details

As the world's largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes. The Mogiana region, split between the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, is the most renowned of three major Brazilian growing regions. This region has rolling hills and uneven terrain lending to farms that are small to medium in size.

Sourcing Details

From this volume of coffee, we have plucked a special treat traceable to a single farm called Sítio São José in the community of Boa Vista.  Michel Bacetti started focusing on the specialty coffee market and working with an export company called FAF Coffees.  The focus has been to implement innovative farm management practices to bring out the best quality.

Processing details

While Michel’s driving focus is on creating farm management innovations, he is also well known for his post harvest processing experience. Michel is careful to selectively pick and process ripe cherries at his mill where the cherries are washed and floated to remove damaged and less dense seeds before the drying process begins.  Cherries are gently dried on raised beds to reduce moisture to 11 percent and then carefully stored until it is time for milling and export.

Exporting details

Michel’s partnership with FAF Coffees helps with many of the logistics of selling to the international market, like warehousing and preparing coffee for export.
