About the farm:
The first coffee seedlings were planted on Sitio Sao Joaquim by Jesimar’s grandfather, Vicente Garcia de Oliveira, in 1853. Now Jesimar runs the farm to the mantra passed on from his father, ‘Coffee is the foundation of our family, and our livelihood comes from the effort that we put into our farm.’ Such energy devoted to producing coffee has paid off for Jesimar, with him taking first place in the Brazil Cup of Excellence competition in 2012; his coffee scored an impressively high 92 points! Jesimar is never idle in his pursuit of learning and improving, coming first for him was just the beginning, not the end. He frequently consults agronomists and is searching for the perfect nutrition balance so his beautiful coffee trees can thrive.
