Aloízio and Guilherme produce varietals of Red Acaiá, Mundo Novo, Red, and Yellow Catuaí. The Yellow Catuaí is the coffee we call Flor de Jasmin. It has a very complex profile due to the high altitude where it grows: 1.460 meters, and all the special care Aloizio and his partner Guilherme give to their farm.
When we met these friendly farmers in July 2021, they told us, to our surprise, that we purchased their coffee at its first birth. It was planted in 2017 and in 2020 it was harvested for the first time and sent to us. The photos are precise of the plantation of Flor de Jasmin – Yellow Catuaí. As you can see in the photos, trees look very healthy, beautiful, and well cared for in their second crop. We got their whole production of 2021. And in this second birth of this plantation results were even better than the first one. Sítio Santo Antônio was not affected by the frosts of 2021, due to the altitude, as frosts usually burn trees at very low levels. Their region is called “Mantiqueira de Minas” which is officially recognized in Brazil as a region of high-quality coffees.
