From La Cabra:

"The Fornaro family, descendents of Italian immigrants to Brazil, are a three-generation team of coffee producers, who farm in several small towns in the Cerrado Mineiro region. Ernesto Fornaro, his son Edenilson, and granddaughter Patricia farm coffee together, using the best of generations of experience alongside youth and entrepreneurship to create a dynamic and quality-focussed business. It hasn’t always been this way however, the first Fornaros to move to Brazil struggled for many years growing sugar cane and grapes in Sao Paolo state, before moving to Cerrado to grow coffee in the 1970’s, along with many others displaced from their lands by frosts and nematode outbreaks. The Paiolinho farm has around 54 hectares planted with coffee, and Catuai is the primary varietal grown here, alongside some Mundo Novo and Topazio. This lot was processed using the natural method, and brings rich and sweet chocolate character to the cup."
