Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Alexandre moved to the Alto Caparaó area at the age of 18.
Currently, he is a producer of specialty coffees at Sitio Bela Vista, in the municipality of Alto Jequitibá , state of Minas Gerais. Its approximately 50,000 coffee trees cover 18 hectares of production and continue to conquer Brazil and the world with wonderful aromas and flavors.
Besides being a farmer by vocation, Alexandre has a degree in Agroindustrial Management, a Q-Grader SCAA Certificate. His son, Marcus, follows his steps. He is also studying agribusiness and helps him on the farm. At Sitio Bela Vista passion and knowledge walk together in the search for the best coffees.
At Ziu we were delighted with their washed Catuaí 44, which brings us that sensation of sweetness in the mouth with a slight and elegant acidity. So delighted that we offer it to our customers in two versions: Espresso and Filter.
