Description

The Brazilian Cinco Estrelas is a fully traceable coffee sourced via Expocaccer and Marunic Trading.

Expocaccer

We visited Expocaccer when we went to Brazil in 2016. Expocaccer is a collaboration of over 500 farmers, driven to identify specialty grade coffees from all farm members.

Prior to Expocaccer all lots with mixed and sold to the large cooperative. Now coffee lots are separated, and those that cup at 83 or more, are then offered as specialty lots.

About Cerrado Mineiro Region

The Cerrado Mineiro Region is a world-recognized coffee producing origin – the first “Designation of Origin” in Brazil, located in the north-west of Minas Gerais State.

Having well-defined seasons – a hot, wet summer and a pleasantly dry winter – is a strong characteristic of the region. The coffee plantations are cultivated in areas with altitudes varying between 800 and 1,300 meters, the result being high-quality coffees with a unique identity.

The coffees are “Origin and Quality Guaranteed” by the Cerrado Mineiro Region – D.O. Regulatory Board.

Ricardo dos Santos Bartholo

Ricardo Bartholo is a former director of a cellulose company, an almost civil engineer, a farmer by choice and a coffee grower by passion. He was born in Rio de Janeiro, but very young he moved to Lençóis Paulistas in São Paulo state to run the family farm, where he met his wife Julia, who gave him two sons, Marcelo and Gustavo. After selling his share of one company, he decided to invest in coffee farming, through a broker he met and fell in love with the Cerrado Mineiro, moving definitively to Patrocínio in 1995, consolidating the dream of being a farmer. With an associative spirit, Bartholo is one of the great leaders of the Region, having been on several occasions President of Expocaccer, position that he currently holds. Fazenda Cinco Estrelas today has the Rainforest Alliance and UTZ Certified seals, as well as being a pioneer in the UN-approved Carbon Credit sale program.
