Producer Ricardo Tavares has dedicated his life to the coffee industry. Ricardo’s father began in the roasted coffee industry, delivering products to meet the demands of Brazil’s domestic coffee consumption. Ricardo began his own story in the world of coffee business at age 19, when he accompanied his father on a trip to northern Brazil. After returning from the rolling hills of coffee trees, Ricardo decided not to continue his career as an economist and, instead, dedicated himself entirely to the purchase and sale of coffee beans in the interior of Minas Gerais.
It was always Ricardo’s dream to own and operate coffee farms, and, years after beginning work in coffee, he acquired Fazenda Primavera, which is the ultimate fulfillment of that goal. The 980 hectares planted with coffee are not just a farm but a property he and his team have built into a regional exemplar of the possibility of specialty coffee production in Brazil, transforming it from its origins in traditional coffee production by Portuguese families who arrived in the late 70’s, when coffee production in the region began.
Social and environmental sustainability have always been integral to the farm’s operations and it is of great importance to Ricardo that production techniques minimize environmental damage.
"Our Faithful" Espresso is something you can always count on, just like an old friend. You can trust it to be full bodied and chocolaty with notes of hazelnuts. Our faithful espresso offers few surprises, but you know what you're getting with this espresso roasted coffee from Chapada de Minas in Brazil.
At the farm Primavera you’ll find hypnotising row after row of deep green, covering the estate in meticulous corridors of gorgeous coffee trees. This is where Ricardo Tavares has fulfilled his dream of producing specialty coffee. The passion and attention to detail is impressive and it shows not only in the red and yellow Catuai that comes from Ricardo and his Fazenda Primavera, but also in the community and environment that surrounds them. They were recently named one of the foremost sustainable farms in all of Brazil and in 2018 they won the Brazilian Cup of Excellence.
