About This Coffee
The Sítio São Sebastião farm is located in the southern region of Minas Gerais, Brazil. It has attained significant recognition in the coffee industry. Their unwavering commitment to sustainable coffee farming practices and good agricultural techniques has resulted in numerous accolades, including the Cup of Excellence in Brazil Naturals in 2015.
The owner, Sebastião Afonso da Silva, initially began growing coffee to supplement his income, but his passion for the crop eventually led it to become the primary source of his family's livelihood. The farm is strategically situated in an area with favourable climatic conditions, fertile soil, and high elevation, which are ideal for coffee cultivation. The coffee beans are carefully hand-picked during the harvesting process, only selecting the ripest ones to ensure the highest quality. The cherries are then washed and sun-dried on patios before being finished in dryers, resulting in uniform dryness and preserving the coffee's quality.
The farm's success can also be attributed to its partnership with Cocarive. This support organization assists with all aspects of production, including marketing. Sítio São Sebastião has become a symbol of excellence in coffee production through their unwavering dedication and hard work.
