About your grower

Almost 90 years are devoted to coffee growing in the Minani’s family. The Yuki's great-grandparents came from Japan, arrived in Brazil, like so many other immigrants, to dedicate themselves to coffee-growing in the inner of São Paulo. And in the 40's the family becomes owner, their first farm was in the North of Paraná. The constant frosts made the Yuki’s family decide to seek new agricultural frontiers and they had found favorable conditions in the Cerrado Mineiro. In 1975, Yuki's father, called Niculau Minami has arrived to explore our Region, lands still unknown and many challenges until understanding the coffee cultivation in this new area. In São Gotardo, Niculau got married and constituted his family. Yuki left her homeland to study, but her passion for agriculture brought her back in 2014 when she decided to contribute to the family business and started work with her father and she identified the potential for specialty coffee production on yours farms.
