With this coffee experience, you can start the day with spirited samba steps and Brazilian rhythms pulsing through your veins. Or, to echo the words of the singer Tony Holiday, “Dance samba with me, samba, samba all night long. Dance samba with me, because samba makes us happy.” This turns every Monday morning into an experience and makes it easier to start the day. Or would you prefer a samba dance in the evening?
The coffee bean farm Fazenda San Martin is located in the heart of the savanna of central Brazil in the state of Minas Gerais, near the district of Patrocinio. It covers an area of 35 hectares and is operated by Senhor Nelson Rivellini, who continues a family tradition of over 100 years. He shared with us his fascinating family history: his grandfather began coffee cultivation back then. The Italian native, along with his entire family, made the long journey from Italy to Brazil to establish initial plantations in Sao Paulo and later in Paraná.
In addition to the traditional processing method, Fazenda San Martin also employs the so-called “eco-washed” or semi-washed method. As a member of the Cerrado Coffee Growers Association, the Rivellini family guarantees high quality standards and sustainable agricultural practices. They utilize state-of-the-art technology for the production of specialty coffees, emphasizing quality and sustainability.
With their “tag” certification, it is possible to trace each individual coffee sack precisely: each one receives a label with a number that allows the exact origin of the coffee to be verified via an online search option, providing comprehensive information about the respective Fazendas.
