Brazil Valdir

This beautiful Brazilian coffee was produced by Valdir Ferreira and his wife Daniela, the owners of a farm Sitio Joaninha. The farm is situated in the valley of Boa Vista Zani, not far from a little town called Caconde in the state of Sao Paulo. This microlot was harvested and naturally processed last year in August.

The story of The Ladybug Farm (Sitio Joaninha = local ladybug)

The story of the Farm Sitio Joaninha is very similar to the other farms we get our coffees from. It was the grandparents of Valdir who started the farm 35 years ago. Valdir has spent all his life on the farm. First as a child and later working.

The coffee market (with its very low prices and unpredictability) and unsustainable development of the farm forced the Ferreira family to change their approach and the whole philosophy of farming. They started focusing on the quality of coffee they produced and eco-friendly farm managing.

Bobolink Project

Valdir was one of the first farmers who got involved in the project of Bobolink http://www.bobolinkcoffee.com/Coffee.asp?op=TheBobolinkCoffee
Valdir, together with Marcos Croce and his son Felip from the very well known Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (FAF), put all effort into hand picking of ripe coffee cherries, drying the cherries on so called african beds and above all dividing the harvest according to its variety and date (into microlots).

Natural Process

This lot is a naturally processed red catuai (August, 2022). This coffee gets picked and also dried right on the farm. We chose this lot during our annual visit in September 2022.

Energy self-sufficiency

Valdir really surprised us with his intention and drive to be the first self-sufficient farmer on the mountain. Two years ago, he installed first few photovoltaic panels and started using his biogas station using pig´s poo. Thus he is able to generate enough electricity and gas to conveniently cook and power most of his home appliances.

Sweet filter roast

We roast this coffee for filter brewing. You get notes of gingerbread, black tea and brown sugar.
