Located in the mountainous region of Sul De Minas, Sitio Nossa is perfectly situated to grow coffee in Brazil. The small 46 hectare farm – of which 26 hectares are coffee producing – has been under the ownership of Rogério Gil Lemos since 1999, after leaving his previous profession of dentistry and life in Sao Paulo behind. They had their first harvest in 2000 and since then have invested in planting new coffee plants as well as rubber trees for diversification. During the harvest between May and September the coffee is manually collected by around 23 pickers they hire from the local area. They look to train the pickers to select the ripest cherry to ensure the best quality. Once picked the coffee is transferred to cement patios where it is piled and turned regularly to ensure an even and uniform drying.
