About your grower

The family of Alfredo Jesus Mitio Nakao, Marie Nakao Sasaki and Claudia Yatio Nakao have a long history in coffee growing. In the Region of Cerrado Mineiro are more than 30 years of history, started by the paternal grandfather and passed as legacy by his parents Mitsuo Nakao and Fumie Nakao, after the parents died the brothers continued with dedication and affection and opened a new chapter in this biography. The Region was chosen due to the quality of the terroir, the productivity and the possibility of mechanization. In the beginning the great challenge was to make the cerrado produce and control the production costs. The secret to quality coffee? Steps that are complete and need to be made with care: from the choice of the terroir, the cultural treatment, to the harvest and post-harvest with a process for excellent drying and storage of the grains. The family is concerned with producing quality and social and environmental responsibility for customer satisfaction.
