“Coffee is our passion” says Mr. Onofre Alves de Lacerda, owner of Sitio Furquilho do Rio. This farm's history is a testament to the sincerity of his words: Furquilho do Rio breaks the mold in a country known for mega-plantations and futuristic coffee technology. Even as the proprietors of a small farm (just 12 hectares), the family has gone above and beyond with processing, varietal separation, and experimentation in a way that is just now emerging among coffee producers in Brazil.
The land for the farm was purchased in 1945 by Mr. Manoel Mart Oliveira, Lacerda´s father, and since that time the family has focused on coffee as their main business. Today the farm has three generations working to produce speciality coffees that have gained a reputation in Brazil.
