Sítio Nossa Senhora Aparecida
Regis Dario Giolo has been growing coffee here for nearly 50 years but has only recently saw improvements in the last 8 years thanks to innovation and more efficient growing methods. The name of the farm honors Our Lady of Aparecida, a spiritual figure to some in Brazil.
Coffee was introduced to the country back in the early 18th century, which rapidly spread throughout Brazil, making it the leading producer of coffee worldwide.
Additionally, Brazil is the only country to utilize mechanized harvesting tools to assist with the extensive coffee fields. The flat topography of the country allows for the ease of machines to slowly comb through the coffee trees and remove ripe cherries. Advanced agricultural technology has allowed for the even harvesting of cherries and prevents uneven harvesting.
Today, the well-known coffee producing regions are Espirito Santo, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, and Bahia.
