About the Farmer

Born and raised in São Paulo, ex-surfer Clayton Barrosa Monteiro was told by his uncle that being a coffee farmer was an easy profession, “you work six months out of the year and the rest you can do whatever you want”. Clayton laughs as he recalls this idea and says, “I have been farming for 18 years and still haven’t seen any time off!”.
This is perhaps because Clayton has an extra dedication to the work that he does. His farm and drying patios are well kept and the execution he and his team perform is immaculate. The farm sits around 1400masl and marks the entrance to the park Pico da Bandeira, one of Brazil’s national wonders. At the peak, 3000masl, temperatures can dip as low as -18 Celsius and on a clear day, one can see across the whole bordering state of Espirito Santo all the way to the ocean.

Under a cool and humid climate, the harvest takes place from June-December each year. Beans ripen slower at this altitude and we pick them selectively before drying them slowly upon raised beds. The dry coffees in a ‘natural process’ which means the drying is done with the skin of the cherry left on. Each year they gifted with surprising flavors that range from red fruits, honey, jasmine, chocolate, brown sugar, and nuts. The specially prepare lots for our relationship customers, some of the best specialty roasters and cafes around the world and on the farm master roaster Markim Gomes can be found bringing out the best of each bean.
