Visiting coffee friends in Brazil...

Posted on July 14, 2008 at 12:30am 0 Comments

I recently traveled to Brazil to visit several coffee producer organizations and friends. I went to Poco Fundo and Nova Resende in Southern Minas, to Lajinha in Eastern Minas and to Venda Nova do Imigrante in Espitito Santo (a lovely town founded by Italian immigrants, many of whom arrived to Brazil to work in coffee in the 1800’s).

Hi Miguel,
I send you yesterday a friend's request but I didn't saw the possibility to write a message. I'm not on "baristaexchange" for makong friends or relations, I'm a Belgian journalist and I would like to use your pictures in a brochure for the Belgian Cooperation Agency. Send me a message on marc@piezo.be and I will explain it to you with more details. And excuse my faults, English is not my native language... :-) Thanks.

I sure wish I was in country. I am stuck in snowy, cold Boston! I have pending permits for my store here to attend hearings to and I cannot afford to miss them. I am still hoping to make it over the weekend, but its looking like a long shot!
Please enjoy Rwanda and give everyone there our love!

MIGUEL, great to hear from you! That is a compliment! I tend to see it as an economic engine establishment for the betterment of all our objectives...."stimulate the industry starting from its growers"... There are two stores...one in the heart of the city, the other in a neighborhood, east of the city.
I look forward to seeing you there.

Hello Miguel, thanks for confirming the contact. You have an ope invitation to come over here anytime- just make sure you give me some notice first so I can make sure I am around. I have not been down to East Timor since November 1998- about time I made another visit I reckon :P
