About the Farmer

Owner of Fazenda Forquilha do Rio, Afonso Lacerda is a two-times champion of Coffee of the Year in Brazil (2016 & 2018) becoming the third generation of farmers, now focused on specialty coffee. To do the right thing comes from his dad Sr. Onofre who always was teaching Afonso about passion and effort to achieve goals in life.

His dad, his brothers, and cousins are coffee producers winning several awards in Brazil. His main goal is to pick an excellent coffee in a plant and bring it to the cup with no losses during the process. He believes that handling with care the post-harvest what makes the coffee taste different.

The farm is located in a mountainous region in Caparaó. About 47 hectares of land giving the opportunity to Lacerda Family to focus on family-based agriculture. Afonso says that his coffees taste sweet, fruity with balanced acidity.

Due to a very steep climbing the service at the farm is not easy but through dedication and effort, he and his family take this challenge with zeal.

During our visit to his farm we had the opportunity to analyze great working process but most of all camaraderie, a spirit of working together.
