Sitio Posses is a farm owned by Marino Reginaldo Gomes in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. The coffee is a collaboration between Marino and Mauro César da Silva – who both grew up working on farms, and now work together producing coffee on Marino’s farm. The farm is 28-hectares, with 5- hectares devoted to coffee.
In 2011 Mauro was exposed to pesticides – enough to make him sick. As a result of this he made a vow to never use them again on the property. They also only use organic materials for fertiliser – no chemicals.
They are invested in improving coffee at the farm level. They enter coffee competitions including Carmo Best Cup, where they placed in the Top 30 of 230 samples received. On the cupping table we thought this was a great example of the future of coffee from Brazil – with the fundamental characteristics of coffee from Brazil we love, and a little twist to keep things interesting.
