History

Grower Homero Paiva draws upon a long heritage of coffee production. He represents the 5th generation and a new one is already following in the family’s footsteps. Homero’s uncle, Fernando Paiva, a wise and visionary man, now 90 years old, started to produce good quality coffees in the 1940s. At that time, he saw the potential of the Santo Antônio do Amparo region for the specialty natural coffees. And he was right.

Based on his belief, passion and hard work, he did a lot for the specialty coffee sector in Brazil and brought many to his side. Fernando is one of the founders of the Brazil Specialty Coffee Association and of Sancoffee. At the awards ceremony, when Henrique Cambraia, the current president of Sancoffee, received the first-place award on behalf of Homero Paiva, he said: “I would like to praise Mr. Fernando for having paved our way toward this amazing outcome.”

After many years, Homero Paiva started his own coffee production in the same farm he grew up. He has decided to focus on specialty coffees and sustainable growing system. And to achieve these goals he has based himself on his family history, knowledge, strongly engaged team and love.
