Fazenda Boa Esperança sits in the South region of Minas Gerais, a state in the north of Southeastern Brazil.
The farm was once called Farm of Tulha and is well known in the region. The property belonged to Mr Joaquim Pedro Ribeiro do Valle’s family and it has always been devoted to coffee planting.
The current owner, Dr. Marcio Bittar Nehemy, acquired the property in 2012, after it had just been renovated but he asked Mr. Gustavo, his nephew, to help him. Mr. Gustavo usually worked with cattle, but saw this as a great opportunity to learn about coffee production, so he began managing the farm.
Mr. Gustavo acquired another two farms: Santa Luzia and Pontal after production had increased year by year. The Santa Luzia farm is l00% irrigated and this is where the coffee goes to be processed. The farm is well equipped to receive the coffee, with a washer, a pulping machine, a centrifuge, a dryer and a wide yard. The coffee is stored in tulhas (wooden boxes}.
Fazenda Boa Esperança grew to five-times the size in a year since Mr. Gustavo started managing. From 12 hectares the farm is now 60 hectares.
“When you want to have specialty coffee, you have to
follow some strict steps and invest in the property, machinery, staff... It’s a long
process and it’s worth it”, said Mr. Gustavo.
