Brazil DBarbosa

Family Farm

Coffee production has been in the Barbosa family since the early 1900's, now in it's 5th generation the farm is producing some of the best coffee in the world.

Danilo is the current owner and manager; his first harvest was in 1979/1980. His success led him to develop the activity and growth of the explored area, acquirement of new farms and introduction of new harvest technologies.

The farm was passed down from Danilo's great-grandfather, Elias, to his grandfather, Claudio, then to his father, Jairo.

Danilo is now joined by his two sons, Vitor and Sérgio, running 490 hectares of coffee trees!

The whole family have a role at the farm with Danilo's wife, Imaculada, and Vitor's wife, Poliana, also working in the office. This makes it like a second home for the family, where they all share the same dream, supporting and learning from each other!

Our visit (2019)

The Bean team had the pleasure of visiting the Barbosa family in 2019.

They got to experience part of farm life, from harvesting the coffee cherries, to processing the beans and finally cupping and brewing them.
