THE STORY BEHIND RICARDO TAVARES

Situated among the plateaus and canyons of Minas Gerais in southeastern Brazil, which borders the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Chapada de Minas is a small region where coffee has been going strong since the 1870s.

Ricardo Tavares inherited a passion for coffee production from his father, and while he continues the tradition of harvesting mostly Red and Yellow Catuai (a variety that originated in Brazil as a hybrid of Mondo Novo and Caturra), he’s equally invested in innovation. His farm has been slowly introducing new varieties, and while most of his coffees are natural processed, he’s also experimenting with equipment for washing and electric drying. Additional advancements include Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance certifications for the farm.
