For many years Osmar Pereira Nunes, the patriarch of the family, took care of herds of cattle without imagining that
the most valuable fruit of this region was still to be cultivated. In 1984, precisely on November 24th, Osmar
Junior planted 10 hectares of Arabica coffee in the soil of Cerrado Mineiro.
Although his story began with taking care of his father’s cattle, his passion for agriculture spoke louder, intensified
by the influence of immigrants who came to invest in coffee in the lands of the state of Minas Gerais. For Osmar Junior:
“Coffee is no longer a commodity, but a special product, a product valued and appreciated worldwide”.
Chapadao Farm, part of Nunes Coffee, is now third generation, the same dedication and passion
for coffee. Osmar’s son, Gabriel, is an agronomist who graduated from the renowned University of Viçosa, and
is applying his knowledge to carry on and bring an export vision to the family’s business.
The green coffees harvested from the Nunes Coffee farms are rated as one of the best in the world.They are
winners of national and international awards, including the first COE in 2015, which is a recognition of daily
work, dedication and the use of innovative processes and advanced technologies
