About the Farmer and "Barra Grande":
Sildes Caixeta, owner of Sitio Barra Grande, is a third-generation coffee farmer from a region called “Alto Barreiro”, on the border of Poço Fundo and Machado in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The farm was owned by his grandfather, but when Sildes was 5 years old, his family was forced to sell the property. In 1985, Sildes bought the property back and now lives in the house his grandfather built. “I am very proud of this place; here is where I first learned the biggest lesson of my life - patience is everything. I did wait 30 years, but the opportunity came and I was ready to buy this property back.” When asked what he would like people to know who enjoy his coffee: “Our secret - patience! We don’t rush, we rotate the cherries multiple times under the sun. My son sometimes wants to get things done faster, but I try to teach him that patience is our secret for good quality and we’re finally seeing the results by selling it for a better price."
