Fazenda Nakamura, from Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Fazenda Nakamura is located in José Gonçalves, Minas Gerais, Brazil, and is managed by Cláudio Fujio Nakamura, a 68-year-old, first-generation coffee grower. The farm consists of 250 hectares of land, with 60 hectares dedicated to growing coffee. It sits at an elevation of 1,050 m.a.s.l, and with around 80,000 coffee trees in production of the Red and Yellow Catuaí, Arara, and IPR 100 varieties.

This Anaerobic lot starts its processing by picking and floating the cherries and leaving them to dry ferment in sealed tanks for up to 10 days. The cherries are then placed to dry in open patios for 15 to 20 days, depending on the weather.

Agronomist by Profession, Coffee Grower by Heart

Claudio started his career in coffee while working as a technical consultant in the state of Paraná back in the 1980s. He saw his future in coffee and when the opportunity to acquire some land was presented to him, he jumped right in. His first farm was located in the Jequitinhonha Valley, but shortly after decided to move to Minas Gerais, where he has lived and grown coffee ever since.

Fast forward 38 years, and Fazenda Nakamura continues to approach coffee growing with an Agronimist’s keen eye, so you can expect top-notch bean quality and meticulous processing every time. 

Looking towards the future, they plan to invest in increasing production and quality at the farm level, a plan that Claudio’s children are willing to carry on. 
Since 2024, we have been working alongside Finca Nakamura, and Claudio’s affection and care for his craft have us eager for future harvests!
