Meet some of our Mogiana Producers
Jose Carlos Alves Pinto, São Sebastião do Paraíso
José and his brothers have 4 farms in São Sebastião do Paraíso. In the 1990s, the brothers invested in technology with an aim to increase the cultivated area and renovate their crops (more adequate spacing, systematization, new varieties). Their focus at the moment is an improvement in business management, and investing in processes, people and optimization to increase sustainability and excellence in the cup.
Marcio Martins Ferreira, Fazendas Monte Alto & Mimosa
Marcio has two farms in Pedregulho, Mogiana. He started his first coffee crop at his father’s estate in 1983, which was dominated by dairy farming. The results from coffee over time meant that Marcio could leave behind the milk production of his father and focus solely on coffee cultivation, which has become the primary income for the family ever since.
History of Coffee in Brazil
American colonists had been drinking coffee for fifty years before the first coffee seed was planted in Brazil in 1727. A hundred years later, Brazil accounted for 30% of the world’s coffee supply. A hundred years after that, in the 1920’s, Brazil held a virtual monopoly, producing 80% of the world’s coffee. Although Brazil’s market share peaked at 80% in the 1920’s, its continuing status as the world’s largest coffee producer still gives the country considerable influence on the market and coffee prices. It is said that when Brazil sneezes, the coffee world catches cold. In 1975, a “black frost” destroyed over 70 percent of the crop in Brazil and coffee prices doubled world-wide. Brazil was a founding member of the Pan-American Coffee Bureau, which invented the concept of a “coffee break,” during an advertising campaign in the early 1950’s.
