On our recent trip to Brazil our head roaster Rummy Keshet bid on the coffee and won it.Sitio Sao JoquimJesimar inherited the property from his grandfather, Vicente Garcia de Oliveira – who planted the first coffee seeds in Sitio São Joaquim back in 1953. Since then, three generations were raised by the income generated by the specialty coffees. Nowadays, coffee is responsible for providing the academic education of Jesimar’s children.The family’s legacy in coffee motivates Jesimar to work harder and harder in raising the quality standards even higher.
