Farm info

Ronaldo César Corandim grew up closely following his grandparent’s work in coffee. He decided to continue in the business of coffee production, purchasing his farm in 2010. He planted his first coffee trees in 2013, adapting his varieties and farm management for the region where the farm is located. His greatest motivation is a passion for coffee, which he learned from his grandparents and has been passed from generation to generation in his family.

Sítio Santa Rita is located 900–1000 meters above sea level in the city of Ribeirão Corrente in the Alta Mogiana growing region in São Paulo state. The property spans 40 hectares total, with 30 hectares planted with Catuai and Mundo Novo varieties.

This lot of Red Catuai coffee underwent Natural processing. Catuai was developed by the Instituto Agronomico (IAC) of Sao Paulo State in Campinas, Brazil by crossing Mundo Novo and Caturra varieties. Catuai coffees are cultivated widely across Brazil, and are known for their high productivity potential.


Alta Mogiana

Located in the northeastern region of the São Paulo state along the border with Minas Gerais, the region has elevations between 900 and 1,000 meters above sea level and an average annual temperature of 21 degrees Celsius. The gently rolling land, rich soil, the fresh water of the Rio Grande, and higher elevations make it a region well suited to coffee production.

Much of Alta Mogiana’s crops are grown on small to mid-sized family-owned farms and estates, which are supported by established local infrastructure and easy access to new technologies. Skilled labor and reliable roads further facilitate the transport of the region’s coffee production across the fifteen municipalities where it is traditionally grown.
