Claudio Carneiro Pinto and his siblings inherited the land which became Sítio Grota São Pedro in the 1960s. In the early 2000s the farm was split, with each brother taking a piece of the farm for growing coffee in their own way. Claudio decided to grow and process coffee organically and over the years has bought the other brothers' land and established his own larger farm. During this time, Claudio has focussed on producing high-quality, specialty coffee and has been rewarded with places in the Cup of Excellence competitions in Brasil. The farm is truly multidimensional; Claudio has a dairy herd which provides milk for dulce de leche, ponds for fishing and an extraordinary variety of fruit trees. The fruit trees include guava, banana, abacaxi, abóbora, batata roxa, goiba, jabuticaba and more. The fruit is turned into jam and this is sold through dopeaopote.com.br
, the farm’s organic goods shop.
