About the Grower

About Grower

Amarildo Borges

The agricultural sector, undoubtedly, is one of those that promotes intergenerational interaction and fosters a love for rural life. Amarildo José Borges exemplifies this. Since childhood, he has been involved in the daily work on his parents' farm, Santa Cecília, in Carmo do Paranaíba, Minas Gerais. Inheriting the property, he has been at the helm of the farm for 30 years, nurturing and intensifying coffee cultivation on his land. Over the years, his passion for coffee farming and his desire to expand his business have grown, leading him to lease another property in the same region to continue the Borges family's legacy in agribusiness.




For the development of the plan of cultural dealings to be executed Amarildo receives the support of Agronomists from the distributor Terrena. The plots are 100% irrigated and the management of the plots is done in order to seek the maximum efficiency of production of the plants. He uses technology of application of inputs according to the planning, always seeking a biological balance and green fertilization. It is done an ecological management of the weeds conserving the soil. Whenever necessary prunings are carried out in the plots and the system used follows a specific planning for each plot.



Harvesting is an important step in the process and it is necessary to perform it optimally and efficiently. Before the harvest, all necessary adjustments are made for the beginning of the process and the level of maturation of the fruits is verified. When the maximum of mature fruits and the minimum of green fruits is found, the harvest is started. The maturation of the plots occurs in a staggered way, facilitating the logistics of the process that is done 100% mechanically through a harvester, which has velocity, vibration and number of rods regulated.



The Cerrado Mineiro region, located in northwest of Minas Gerais State is a world-recognized, high-quality coffee producing origin and became the first Protected Geographical Indication in Brazil in 2005, with full Designation of Origin in 2013.

A strong characteristic of this region is its well-defined seasons - a hot, wet summer followed by a pleasantly dry winter. The dry climate during harvest eliminates potential problems with humidity during the drying process.

Minas Gerais is Brazil’s principal agricultural state, and the Cerrado is home to many of the country’s celebrated coffee estates, with expertise in planting, harvesting, drying, and sorting. We love Cerrado coffees for their big body, rich chocolate notes, and velvety texture when pulled as espresso.

Today, the area’s 4,500 farmers produce a combined average of 6 million bags per harvest, with an average of 35 bags per hectare. To reach these production levels, producers had to first adapt to the region’s conditions. Coffee farmers first arrived in Cerrado in the 1970’s, after being pushed out of the state of Parana by frost and out of the state of São Paulo by nematodes.

They found the soil in Cerrado to be very acidic, which they rectified with the application of calcium to create the healthy soils they enjoy today. Cerrado coffee farms are cultivated in areas with elevations varying between 800 and 1,300 meters above sea level and are known for consistently producing high quality coffees with a repeatable profile. Independent of farm size, the spirit of professionalism is present throughout Cerrado’s coffee producers.

Entrepreneurialism is part of farmers’ DNA, and many producers are second or third generation growers who also hold degrees in agronomic engineering, business management, and administration. While each family narrative is different, Cerrado is characterized by an enterprising attitude.




When it comes to environment Amarildo cares about preserving the nature in his surroundings. The springs and native forest area are protected and preserved, fauna and flora are preserved, the management of the weeds is done conserving the soil and the planting of trees is also carried out. In the social aspect he participates in social projects in favor of the community in which he lives, helping and collecting donations for nursing homes, cancer hospitals, among other entities. The relationship with employees is important and Amarildo helps them in what is necessary for their well-being and their families.



"I work with coffee, beans and dairy cattle, and I`m glad to know someone is going to be enjoying the product I made. I feel that I am contributing to society and the environment, doing my part" Amarildo José Borges.
