This coffee came from: Ricardo Tavares

Following his father’s footsteps, producer Ricardo Tavares has dedicated his life to the coffee industry. Ricardo’s father began in the roasted coffee industry, delivering products to meet the demands of Brazil’s domestic coffee consumption. Ricardo began his own story in the world of coffee business at age 19, when he accompanied his father on a trip to northern Brazil. After returning from the rolling hills of coffee trees, Ricardo decided not to continue his career as an economist and, instead, dedicated himself entirely to the purchase and sale of coffee beans in the interior of Minas Gerais.

It was always Ricardo’s dream to own and operate coffee farms, and, years after beginning work in coffee, he acquired Fazenda Primavera, which is the ultimate fulfillment of that goal. The 980 hectares planted with coffee are not just a farm but a property he and his team have built into a regional exemplar of the possibility of specialty coffee production in Brazil, transforming it from its origins in traditional coffee production by Portuguese families who arrived in the late 70’s, when coffee production in the region began.

Fazenda Primavera is located in the municipality of Angelândia, Minas Gerais, a region at the transition between biomes, with land and vegetation characteristic of both the Atlantic forest and the Cerrado. The farm’s elevations, between 1000 to 1050 meters above sea level, promote the cultivation of specialty coffee and the climate also provides favorable conditions with average temperatures between 20 and 24 °C annually and precipitation of 1,000 to 1,300 mm.

Fazenda Primavera has state of the art installations including a 24,000 m² drying patio, 14 electric dryers, and equipment for processing Natural, Pulped Natural, Honey, and fully Washed coffees. The farm cultivates predominately Red and Yellow Catuai and has been adding new varieties, from Topazio to Geisha. Pulped Natural Geisha from Primavera won first place at the 2018 Cup of Excellence!

Social and environmental sustainability have always been integral to the farm’s operations and it is of great importance to Ricardo that production techniques minimize environmental damage. A power plant on the farm recycles water used in depulping to produce energy and the coffee pulp is composted for use as natural fertilizer. Primavera’s team conducts outreach to neighboring farmers to share knowledge and best practices to help move the region of Angelândia and Chapada de Minas forward, particularly through Instituto Café Solidario.

One of the best worldwide

I order coffee from all over the world and Yield Brazil is one of my favorites. I always have this roast on hand alongside from other domestically roasted beans. Roasted out of Ohio, very few roaster can achieve the well rounded notes and balanced flavor profiles that Yield has consistently delivered. I typically order from 4-5 roasters a month and Yield Brazil is a favorite when we have guests.

Just had to order more!

Brazil, along with Sweater Weather and Honduras, are my favorites. I was out, though, so I needed to order more. All three are great tasting (they've got that chocolate taste) and make that first cup of coffee in the morning a special one!

Consistent coffee, consistent customer

I'll start trying different brands but over the last several years, I always find myself coming back to this flavor. Yes, partly because I know my coffee is making a difference but also because it's exactly what my palette is searching for in the mornings. Truly a win-win as every cup of this Jo has been a great cup of Jo.
