Pedro Santana bought farmland in Brazil’s Piatã area in 1989. At that time, he was leading a busy, stressful life, working as a banker in São Paulo. Pedro moved to the country with his family to pursue a slower, simpler life. He planted coffee to take advantage of the area’s ideal growing conditions.
The farm’s name, Cafundó, translates to ‘very, very far away’ – which it is, both physically and mentally, from the bustle of the city. With the help of the high elevation and the shade trees Pedro planted, the coffee cherries mature slowly, allowing sugars to develop, and resulting in a sweet and complex cup profile.
“I wake up early and spend the whole day on the land,” Pedro told us. “I love the calm of the countryside. Delzute, my wife of over 40 years, works by my side during the harvest and helps with administration.” Pedro has no regrets about switching from banking to coffee production. He told us, “No amount of money could pay for what we have here.”
