Story Behind The Coffee

Fazenda Rio Verde was already established before the newly married Antonio Fachardo Junqueira andGabriella Augusta inherited the farm as a dowry. However, it was the couple who first established coffee here in 1887. In 1920, their grandson, Antenor, took over management of the farm and began implementing incredibly innovative processes for the time, separating lots by quality and color and constructing brick patios to improve the drying process.During the period between World War I and the Economic Crisis of 1929, the farm went through great difficulties and to deal with them, Antenor made great efforts to become self-sufficient in the production of flour, cachaça, sweets and jams, beef, chicken, pork, wool, and various herbs and vegetables. In 1964,Antenor’s son-in-law, Luiz Cyrillo Fernandes assumed control of the farm and continued innovations and sustainability efforts, building new infrastructure for wet and dry processing, and milling of the coffees. Healso invested in an intense soil fertilization program. 81 separate chicken sheds were filled with 136,000 hens solely to generate 800 tonnes of organic fertilizer a year. This program ran from 1964 through to 1992. Luiz Cyrillo Fernandes himself continued to lead the business and was involved in all decision making up until 2002. Always aiming for the most innovative techniques and equipment, he traveled widely to find ways to improve coffee production. Through his work during this time, Ipanema Coffees was a pioneer in introducing procedures that are now standard practice in Brazil, such as pruning techniques and mechanical harvesting. After the liberalization of trade in 1991, Ipanema Coffees was one of the first companies to begin exporting products abroad. In the same year, the first coffee bags were shipped toEurope, and thousands of other shipments followed.In 2002, engineer and current CEO, Washington Rodrigues, stepped into the founding family’s footsteps. Hewas responsible for various innovations and solutions which allowed the company to enter into new markets and build up long-lasting relationships with buyers.Under his leadership, some of the company's achievements became milestones in the history of coffee inBrazil. For example, Ipanema Coffees was one of the first companies to construct infrastructure for wet milling and was the first to be certified by Utz and Rain Forest certification programs. Specialty coffees became the company's flagship. Until now Ipanema Coffees is a permanent participant at international specialty coffee fairs and is also a founder of the Brazil Specialty Coffee Association (BSCA).Their Premier Cru project, initiated in 2014, has taken specialty coffee to new heights in the country and is a natural extension of the farm’s approach to quality and innovation.
