Grower Homero Paiva draws upon a long heritage of coffee production.  He represents the 5th generation and a new one is already fallowing in the family’s footsteps.  Homero’s uncle, Fernando Paiva, a wise and visionary man, now 90 years old, started to produce good quality coffees in the 1940’s.  At that time, he saw the potential of the Santo Antonio do Amparo region for the specialty natural coffees.  Based on his belief, passion, and hard work, he did a lot for the specialty coffee sector in Brazil and brought many to his side.  Fernando is one of the founders of the Brazil Specialty Coffee Association.

Deeply rooted in Brazilian tradition, Guariroba farm is named for one of the country’s native palm trees.  Fittingly, the farm will represent Brazil to the coffee world.  In the 2016 Cup of Excellence in Brazil, the Guariroba farm had 4 coffee lots in the finals and ultimately winning the prestigious Cup of Excellence!  Receiving the top score out of thousands of entries, this micro lot was evaluated initially by a jury before being cupped numerous times over a three- week stretch by a panel of international experts.
