History of the farm:
In the family for over 60 years, and now run by the 4th generation, Fazenda Nossa Senhora Aparecida has already won the grand prize for natural coffee produced in Brazil. In the 2013 edition of the Cup of Excellence – Brazil Naturals its coffee placed first with a score of 92.22.
Situated in a privileged region in the Mantiqueira de Minas Mountain Range, in the city of Carmo de Minas, the farm brings unites an excellent climate with good post-harvest practices to create the conditions for producing some of the best coffees in Brazil, and in the world. Together, Cínthia, Ticiana, Cláudia and Roney Dias Villela, children of Regina Lucia and Edmo Junqueira Villela, administer Fazenda Nossa Senhora Aparecida aided by their parents’ vast experience in planting and caring for the varieties most-recommended for obtaining productivity and quality, both of which stand out in the Mantiqueira de Minas region.
Coffee processing system: Natural
Concern about quality:
The father carefully chose the location for the Bourbn crops, at 1200 m. The harvest is selective and only ripe coffee cherries make up the lot. The coffee is taken directly from the fields to the patio. It is raked repeatedly (to promote uniform drying) by Ivanil, a collaborator responsible for handling the washing, drying and processing of the coffee. The goal is to continuously improve the production and commercialization of a coffee that meets the most demanding standards of quality of potential partners worldwide.
