Cafundó is produced by Pedro
Santana, who bought farmland
outside Piatã in 1989. At that
time, he was leading a busy,
stressful life, working as a banker
in São Paulo. He moved to the
country with his family to pursue
a slower, simpler life. He invested
in coffee to take advantage of the
farm’s high altitude and the area’s
favourable growing conditions.
The farm’s name, Cafundó,
translates to ‘very very far away’
– which it is, both physically and
mentally, from the bustle of São
Paulo. With the help of the high
altitude and the shade trees in the
plantation, the beans mature slowly,
allowing sugars to develop and
resulting in a sweet, complex cup.
When we asked Pedro what his
typical day looks like, he said,
wake up early and spend the whole
day on the land. 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.”
