Gertrude and Celso’s 12-hectare farm “Sitio Boa Vista” boasts more than just delicious coffee. Here, you’ll find beautiful sunsets, natural springs and wild forests. Together with their son, Denner, they grow and process their coffee, working closely with Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (FAF), a farm who are pioneers of environmentally-friendly coffee farming.
They have been continuously improving their practices, playing a role in Brazil’s growing speciality coffee industry. All coffee is harvested by hand, and the family have invested in state of the art equipment to assure quality is maintained throughout the process.
Celso and Gertrudes farm is in the mountainous region of Caconde, in the state of Sao Paulo. They farm eight hectares of Catuai, Mundo Novo and Bourbon cultivars. Until 2006 the farm produced conventional coffee. The transformation to specialty started when they decided to undertake post-harvest processing at the farm, rather than sell their unprocessed coffee cherries to the local wet mill facility.
