At the farm Primavera you’ll find hypnotising row after row of deep green, covering the estate in meticulous corridors of gorgeous coffee trees. This is where Ricardo Tavares has fulfilled his dream of producing specialty coffee. The passion and attention to detail is impressive and it shows not only in the red and yellow Catuai that comes from Ricardo and his Fazenda Primavera, but also in the community and environment that surrounds them.
