The Santo Antonio was grown in the Chapada Diamantina region of Brazil's Bahia state. The Borré family has been farming here since 1984. At first, they were potato farmers - at one point they were one of the largest potato producers in Brazil! - and it wasn't until 2005 that the family decided to diversify their crops and invest in coffee.
Over the last 13 years, the commitment and attention to detail that made the Borré clan successful potato farmers, has been applied to their coffee business. The family made a point of consulting with top experts in the field, and invested in state-of-the-art infrastructure that allows them to exercise quality control throughout the growing and production processes.
The farm is now run by third-generation producer, Fabiano Borré, who told us, "The direct involvement in all stages of production actually turns every work day into a different and rich experience...Working with something so sensitive, so changeable, involving the most varied areas of knowledge, it's amazing. That's why I choose coffee!"
