Gilmar‘s family has always lived in the field, but before 2012 there hasn‘t been coffee in the farm. That changed when he inherited the property from his father and decided to start the activity. A few years later, after the first crops, Gilmar noticed the great potential of his coffees. The area‘s micro climate must be the secret for such high qualities, but he states that his passion for the work has its effects. Now, after three years in a row producing specialties and being spotted at "Especialissimo“ a project in partnership with cooperativa Cooxupé.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Southern Minas Gerais is one of the most productive regions in Brazil. It has some of the largest coffee producers in Brazil as well as many small farms. This region accounts for 30% of Brazil’s coffee production. This region has been growing Arabica coffee since the 1850s and is characterized by rolling hills, a mild climate averaging 23° C, and high elevations. Thus, its micro climate greatly contributes to the high quality coffees. 

The mountainous terrains go up to 1,400 metres above sea level and are ideal for cultivating coffee. The most common varieties that are cultivated in Sul De Minas are Yellow Catuai and Novo Mundo. The rest includes Icatu and Red Catuai. Most coffee are washed-processed and natural-processed. Their cup-profiles are typically: full-bodied, low-acidity, fruity aromas, chocolatey and citric notes.

Brazil is the largest exporter in the world, supplying approximately 60% of the world's coffee - this is due in part to the sheer size of the country. While Brazil is a prolific exporter, it's average elevation for coffee production is only about 1,100 meters. This qualifies most of it as High Grown Coffee (900-1,200 meters), but some crops certainly fall below that threshold.

The best Brazilian coffees have a relatively low acidity, and exhibits a nutty sweet flavor, often bittersweet with a chocolaty roast taste. Most unroasted Brazilian green coffee is dry processed (unwashed; natural).

Coffee is believed to have arrived in Brazil in 1727 from French Guiana via Portuguese Lt. Col Francisco del Melo Palheta. As the story goes, he seduced the Guianese's governor's wife to acquire her help smuggling the seeds across the border—apparently it worked.

The six Brazilian states with the largest acreage for coffee are Minas Gerais (1.22 million hectares); Espírito Santo (433,000 hectares); São Paulo (216,000 hectares); Bahia (171,000 hectares); Rondônia (95,000 hectares); and Paraná (49,000 hectares).

Mundo Novo
Leinage Description

Catuai is a hybrid of the Mundo Novo and yellow Caturra varietals. It was created in the 1950s by the “Instituto Agronômico de Campinas” in Brazil, likely in an attempt to create a high-yielding and high disease-and-pest-resistance plant; although the latter criteria is unmet, it gained popularity in several countries of Central America and continues to play a vital role economically in these countries till today. For instance, it accounts for almost half of the Arabica coffee cultivated in Honduras.

Varietal Description

‘Catuai’ which stands for ‘very good’ in Tupi-Guarani, is a high yielding coffee plant created through crossing the Mundo Novo and yellow Caturra varietals. Due to its small stature, Catuai plants can be planted closely together (high planting density) resulting in increased efficiency during harvesting. However, Catuai is also highly susceptible to diseases and pests. 

Cartuai coffee exhibits the following traits in its taste profile:

  • Heavier body (Red Catuai); Lighter body (Yellow Catuai)
  • Bright, crisp acidity
  • Nutty and fruity aroma
  • Flavour notes: nuts, caramel, citrus
