Description:

RicardoTivares' story into the world of coffee began at the age of 19, when he accompanied his father on a trip to northern Brazil. After returning from the seemingly endless rolling hills ofcoffee 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 Fazenda Primavera 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, completely transforming the land and its facilities from its origins in traditional coffee production by Portuguese families who arrived in the late 70's.

With an emphasis on social and environmental sustainability along with the implementation of the latest farming and production techniques and technology, Ricardo and his team have produced award winning coffees year after year and this delectable Yellow Catuai you are soon to experience is no exception!
