About the Farmer

We are proud to work directly with Alexandre Emerich and to have toured his farm. The quality and dedication towards his work is inspiring and we are blessed to be able to support his production of excellent coffee.
Alexandre is the owner of Sítio Bela Vista and the producer responsible for the delicious coffees produced on this beautiful land. This coffee is created first by selecting carefully by hand, only the ripest cherries. The coffee then passes through a floating process to separate the ripe and underripe cherries, followed by a natural fermentation process in covered tanks until a temperature of 38 degrees is reached. The coffee is then dried on traditional Brasilian earth beds.
Alexandre was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, and at the age of 18 he fulfilled his dream of having a coffee farm in Alto Caparaó, the hometown of his father where he always spent vacations.
Today he owns and produces specialty coffees at Bela Vista at Alto Jequitibá, Serra do Caparaó, Minas Gerais.

Alexandre is a farmer, graduated in Agricultural business, Q-Grader SCAA (Specialty Coffee
Association of America). He is the husband of Liliane and the father of 3 children: Marcus, Ester and Sofia.

Sítio Bela Vista is located in the city of Alto Jequitibá, in the Serra do Caparaó - MG.
With a peak elevation of 1,200 meters, the coffee crop of 50,000 plants stretching across 18 hectares, produces fruits of the highest quality.
The farm is blessed with favorable soil composition and climate conditions. Sitio Bela Vista coffees are harvested with a hand-picked selection process and ecological drying. The resulting coffee is rich and vibrant with aromas and flavors that delight specialty coffee lovers.

About the Farmer

Quando visitámos a fazenda do Alexandre Emerich fomos envolvidos pela qualidade e dedicação do seu trabalho.
O Alexandre nasceu no Rio de Janeiro e aos 18 anos passou a ser o dono de uma fazendo em Alto Caparaó.
Hoje produz cafés de especialidade no Sítio Bela Vista e na Serra do Caparaó, na região de Minas Gerais, Brasil.

Antes de chegar à sua chávena, o café Rafael começa a ser criado na sua colheita: são seleccionadas e colhidas à mão apenas as bagas mais maduras.
Após a colheita, as bagas são colocadas num tanque de modo a passarem por um processo de flutuação - para que se separem as bagas maduras das mais verdes, seguido pela fermentação natural até atingir os 38 graus.
Após a fermentação o café é então seco nas tradicionais camas de terra brasileiras.

O Sítio Bela Vista encontra-se no município de Alto Jequitibá, na Serra do Caparaó - Minas Gerais.
Com pico de altitude de 1.200 metros, a cultura de café de 50.000 pés, que se estende por 18 hectares, produz frutos da mais alta qualidade.
A fazenda é abençoada com uma composição de solo e condições climáticas favoráveis à produção de café.
Os cafés do Sitio Bela Vista são colhidos com processo de seleção manual e secagem ecológica, que lhes traz aromas ricos e vibrantes que encantam os amantes de cafés de especialidade.
