For many years, Osmar Pereira Nunes was a beef cattle rancher. His son, Osmar Junior, began farming coffee with his father in 1984, when he planted the first 10 hectares of Arabica. Despite his history of having started with his father’s cattle ranch, the passion for agriculture proved stronger, intensified by the immigrants who arrived to invest in coffee in the lands of Cerrado Mineiro.
With the passage of time Osmar Junior acquired the Chapadão, Bom Jardim, and Fazenda Freitas farms that bring him such pride. Nunes Coffee continues the passion for coffee agriculture with Junior’s son, Gabriel, a recognized agronomist from the University of Viçosa. Gabriel applies his knowledge to further the farm and bring a business mindset to the family enterprise.
Today, there is a revolution happening in the countryside and another revolution happening across the palates of the world’s coffee drinkers. Modern machines evolve the processes of planting, management, harvest, and post harvest, speeding up and improving productivity. Mechanization brings unique benefits to coffee that pass all the way to the consumer’s cup.
Coffee harvested on the Nunes Coffee farms are evaluated to be some of the best in the world. Winners of national and international competitions, Nunes farms are recognized for their daily work, integrated dedication, and use of innovative technologies and advanced processing.
220 of Fazenda Freitas’ 300 hectares are planted with Mundo Novo, Red and Yellow Catuaí, Bourbon, Araras, Catucaí, Topázio, IBC-12, and Oeiras varieties of coffee in the city of Patrocinio. Fazenda Freitas employs both Natural and Pulped Natural processing.
