Meet Cassio Martins

In the region of Sul de Minas, a mountain valley slopes down to the foot of the striking Morro Redondo, forming the basin that is Fazenda Monte Verde. This farm features a wide range of growing conditions, situated as it is with elevations ranging from 1000 to 1200 meters above sea level and having coffee plots facing all directions.

When harvest time arrives each fall, farm manager Cassio Martins processes the Yellow Bourbón cherries as a pulped natural, removing the skin from the coffee cherry and leaving most of the sweet fruit mucilage. This residue slowly dries on the beans, infusing them with flavor. What results is this intensely sweet, balanced coffee.

Sul de Minas, Brazil

The south of Minas Gerais is the largest producer of coffee in Brazil, averaging 12 million bags per year! Arabica coffee, introduced in the 1850’s, is the traditional variety here, with Catuai and Novo Mundo being the most widely grown. While Sul de Minas is home to some of the largest coffee estates, more than half of the farms in the region are small to medium-sized.

Land here is fertile, and coffee is the main crop, followed by soybeans, rice, wheat, potatoes, and corn. Cattle abound, but banks and automobiles do not. In addition to diamond, gold, and gemstone mines, the state of Minas Gervais is rich in history and European influence. Indigenous people make up a significant percentage of the population, and though Portuguese is the prominent language, other residents hail not just from Portugal but from many parts of the globe, including Africa, Germany, and Lebanon.

Ritual Coffee

When Ritual opened its doors on Valencia Street in 2005, they started what many call a coffee revolution in San Francisco. Their goal then—and their goal now—is to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. A pioneer in the recent shift of consciousness that has defined the modern coffee industry, they’ve learned a lot over the years. Still, the care and attention they lavish on their process is unchanged as they work to bring the very best out of the coffees they painstakingly choose, roast, and deliver fresh to coffee lovers worldwide.

With 5 retail stores in the bay area and a roasting facility in the SoMa district of San Francisco, Ritual takes pride in a growing number of direct trade relationships with coffee producers around the world, working with farmers to help them improve their quality with each passing season.
