Brazil Sitio Gamelao Natural Coffee

Sebastiao Eloi Miranda lives at his small farm Sitio Gamelao with wife Tereza. His parents moved from Sao Paulo to Minas Gerais when he was only 2 and since then, coffee has been part of his family routine. He started working as a picker for other farms and at the age of 25, Mr Miranda bought his first piece of land and planted 1 hectare of Coffee.

“Things were quite different a few years ago. We used to mix all of our micro lots because buyers didn’t care about higher quality. The quantity was the most important thing”, says Sebastiao. Nowadays, Mr Miranda produces 500 bags of Specialty Coffee annually, mainly Yellow Catuai. Sun-dried on a cemented patio and a few bags on raised beds. “We are happy to hear that consumers all over the world are enjoying our coffee. Better prices give us the motivation to focus on quality”.

Cherries are carefully handpicked and then coated in a tank of water to separate by density. The densest, ripest cherries sink to the bottom of the tank and the oaters are removed. The remaining high-quality cherries are then dried on the patio in the sun with skin and pulp intact until the optimum moisture content has been reached. The cherries must be carefully maintained and turned to prevent over- fermentation or mould developing. Once the dried coffee cherries have been rested for a month, they are hulled, graded by bean size and bagged in GrainPro liners to preserve freshness.

Machado is located in the south of the Minas Gerais region. The local area has some of the highest elevations of any coffee growing region in Brazil (up to 1,250masl). The cooler climate allows for a slow cherry development, mild but distinct acidity and nice healthy trees!

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a coffee shop

"With consumers working from home and unable to visit their favourite coffee shops as a result of the pandemic, they have been honing in on their barista skills to get their coffee fix at home. They are also buying coffee shop branded coffee to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience.""Despite the fact that many consumers are facing economic uncertainty, premium and branded coffees have an opportunity to market themselves as affordable luxuries. The purse strings may need to tighten but a premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than drinks from a coffee shop. Consumers are discovering it is safer and more cost-effective to have their own coffee at home and this trend is likely to continue even once the virus is under relative control...This shift opens up a real opportunity for coffee and the products that will support them in recreating that experience at home."For more: Comunicaffe International
