About Fazenda Cachoeira

Fazenda Cachoeira is located in the town of São Sebastião Da Grama, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Just 3 miles from the Minas Gerais state line, the farm is characteristic of the coffee farms around the mountainous areas of Mogiana and Sul de Minas. In this area, the rolling volcanic topography and abundant rainfall combine to create ideal growing conditions for outstanding coffee.

Fazenda Cachoeira (meaning ‘waterfall’) is managed by cousin Gabriel de Carvalho Dias, a well-known agronomist and ecological innovator. On the farm, he has worked to develop a program of planting native species to achieve a balanced ecology. The farm is powered by its own small hydroelectric plant that goes hand-in-hand with safe water management practices to avoid polluting native streams. The farm has a school, a club, soccer field, and nearly 50 family houses on the farm for employees and workers.

Gabriel is an entrepreneur at heart, with an unwavering commitment to high standards for quality of coffee, stewardship of the land and treatment of people. He was the first in the family to go beyond farming, delving into roasting and travelling the globe to set up direct-trade relationships. He was an inspiration and source of business advice for Augusto in the early days of Nossa Familia.

From Augusto Carvalho Dias Carneiro, founder of Nossa Familia Coffee:

I am so stoked to share this coffee with you. To have a CUP OF EXCELLENCE WINNER within the family is very special, and the fact that this is in Brazil, the largest coffee producing country in the world, makes it huge accomplishment. Hats off to my cousin Gabriel and his crew who are clearly doing a very good job!

And thank you to YOU, and all our customers who make it possible for us to acquire this competition level & award-winning coffee.

On top of being a great agronomist, my cousin Gabriel, is also a serial entrepreneur who played a HUGE role in the launch of Nossa Familia, helping me in and through the very challenging early days of the company. He was also the Specialty Coffee pioneer within the family, embracing the Third Wave Coffee movement, and helping spread the beautiful 100+ year history of our family’s Coffee.

I hope you enjoy the richness of this coffee, and taste some of the love and tradition that is infused in each bean!
