Chapada de Mias
Hibiscus, canteloupe, and soft florals.
At the Matilde Farm in the picturesque region of Chapada de Minas, Brazil, Ricardo and Leonardo Tavares cultivate a coffee legacy.
Spanning 550 hectares with coffee crops nestled between Cerrado and Rain Forest vegetation, the farm sits at an average altitude of 1,060 masl, creating a unique microclimate.
A History of Excellence: Rooted in a rich family history dating back to Sr. Aprigio Tavares Jr in 1973, Matilde Farm has become synonymous with excellence. Ricardo, a world champion of the Cup of Excellence in 2018, continues the family's third-generation commitment to specialty coffee farming.
Farming Conditions: The farm's diverse topography features a flat landscape interspersed with gentle hills and fed by healthy stream and river systems. Shaded by mahogany trees, the coffee crops benefit from slower cherry maturation, enhancing sweetness and in-cup complexity.
Instituto Solidario: Matilde Farm embraces sustainable practices, with a social project named "Instituto Solidario" benefiting local families and farm employees. This initiative focuses on holistic well-being, providing medical care, nutrition seminars, vaccination, illness prevention, and support for the elderly and women's health, among other services.
The Total Package: Whether through efficient mechanised picking for naturals, pulped naturals, or fully Waxed processes, Matilde's coffees are celebrated for their clean, sweet, velvety body and unique acidity. Beyond coffee, Matilde Farm exemplifies a commitment to community welfare, intertwining quality coffee production with social responsibility.
