Following his father’s footsteps, producer Ricardo Tavares has dedicated his life to the coffee industry since the young age of 19.
Ricardo acquired Fazenda Primavera, a 980 hectare coffee farm located in the municipality of Angelândia, Minas Gerais, years after beginning his work in coffee. He and his team have since built the farm and property into a regional exemplar of the possibility of specialty coffee production in Brazil.
Social and environmental sustainability have always been integral to the farm’s operations and it is of great importance to Ricardo that production techniques minimize environmental damage. Primavera’s team conducts outreach to neighboring farmers to share knowledge and best practices to help move the region of Angelândia and Chapada de Minas forward, particularly through Instituto Café Solidario. Additionally, Primavera’s agility in responding to new agricultural research and technology and to new trends in consumer preference helps them deliver coffee that is continuously exceptional in flavor and quality!
