Augusto and Patricia’s farm is called Capadocia, it is in the South of Minas
Gerais. Sul de Minas is a well-known area in Brazil for coffee production and
accounts for approximately 30% of Brazil’s production. Capadocia covers 7
hectares in total, 4 of which are currently used for coffee production, and
the farm is situated between 1100 and 1300 meters above sea level.
The cherries are harvested by hand and “naturally processed”. Coffee
cherries are picked when evenly ripe, and hand sorted to remove defects,
before being dried on a patio. Augusto believes that cherry maturation is a
key factor in producing great quality coffees.
