ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO GROW IT: Sitio Bela Vista is located in a community referred to as Barring, in the state of Minas Gerais, famed for outstanding coffee production. Tiago Rezende and his brothers take care of this plantation as well as other various coffee plantations in the surrounding areas. In Brazil it is common practice to work on plantations that do not belong to you in order to harvest more coffee, this process is called “Meieros.” The farmers use an all natural process followed by sun drying their beans on paved patios for the best results.
This is a region of exceptional beauty, and is a haven for diverse flora and numerous animals. To conserve this natural environment and preserve its ecological balance for future generations, sustainable principles guide all cultivation and processing practices on the farm.
