This is the second harvest we have received from Sao Joaquim. Our director of coffee Rummy Keshet met the owner of the farm, Jesimar Sandi on our Minas Gerais trip in 2020. They quickly became friends, sharing their love for high quality coffee.

Jesmiar Sandi owns and runs Sitio São Joaquim. He is a passionate farmer and his farm sits on one of the best terroirs in his region. The 67-hectare farm was inherited from his grandfather, and father before him. The first seedlings were planted on Sitio São Joaquim in 1953, and coffee has been a big part of the family business ever since. It is their primary source of income and has allowed Jesimar's children to pursue their education and maintain a good standard of living.

After Jesimar lost a son to an accident, he almost lost his love for farming and considered stepping away from Sitio São Joaquim. Instead, he refocused his energy and decided to devote himself to high-quality coffee. As a result, he was encouraged to send his coffee to the Cup of Excellence competition in 2012, and to his own surprise, he took first place, with an incredible score of 92 points.
