The fifth generation of the Italian descent Brioschi family has made a living from coffee since their great-grandparents. The coffees produced at Sítio dos Cedros, the family’s main property, undergo a careful selection through manual harvesting carried out by the owners and agricultural partners, providing greater satisfaction to those who will taste the drink. From May to December, the beans mature slowly and healthily thanks to the region’s mild temperature and rich soil, in addition, of course, to family work.
Along with that, the property has made a commitment to nature by developing the agroforestry system, thus reducing impacts on the environment, and bringing even more remarkable qualities to the fruit. The lots from Sítio dos Cedros have high sweetness, medium body with a creamy texture, high acidity, sugarcane, and caramel flavor, prolonged and balanced finish, in addition to having floral notes and yellow fruits, mainly jasmine, cajá and mango, red fruits, honey, nuts and other infinity of flavors. The uniqueness of the product, combined with the careful family work, has already been recognized in some awards, such as the Quality of Venda Nova do Imigrante Contest (2014) and the 2017 Highlight Award promoted by BSCA.
