The grower Ronaldo Campos Borges went down to Curitiba, South of Brazil, graduated in Agronomics and started working in the IBC – Instituto Brasileiro do Café. Besides, since 1980 he started managing his own production, interrupted four years later in face of the frequent frosts and lower productivity. He came then to Araxá, Minas Gerais, and acquired the Bom Café Farm, but he had no idea how the enterprise would be so successful. Currently he has two farms and recently he acquired the third one, the Paraíso Farm, which started plantation in 2018. He also has a first line assistant in the family, his daughter Leticia who is also an agronomist that supports him in the business management.
Totaling 140 hectares at an average altitude of 1000 meters, the Bom Café, Entrelinhas and Rubiácea farms produce quality coffees, mixing elegance and rusticity. All farms are UTZ certified, guaranteeing good agricultural and management practices, healthy and safe working conditions and nature protection.
The youngest daughter, Letícia, is an Agronomist and is already involved in all stages of the farms, from planting, harvesting to marketing. What is the secret of the quality of our coffee? In addition to the careful choice of varieties, strict control of seedlings, proper handling of grains and harvesting on the spot, our main ingredients are the love for the land and the passion for coffee, passed from generation to generation, preserving the mining tradition with a hint of excellence.Ask for your sample
