Ivan’s family have lived on the mountain for almost 40 years. Three of his siblings have built on their father’s legacy and are busy expanding the family name and quality coffee reputation around the mountain they call home. Ivan, the youngest son, started his own farm on the other side of the hill and called it Sitio Seriema. Sitio Seriema is also known as the Brazilian Roadrunner, an elegant bird that lives in the valley where the farm is nestled. It’s a cheeky, flirtatious and curious bird with long eyelashes and long skinny legs that make it move with a cat-like walk as it wanders through the coffee plantations.
With his wife Rose from the Jacon family in the neighbouring valley, they are set to create their own new coffee tradition.
Respect for the environment is key here, as anyone will notice immediately upon talking to the couple. They are at the top of the mountain where many of the area’s natural water springs rise, including those that serve their neighbours and the local town of Caconde. The responsibility for the protection of these priceless resources is something Ivan, and Rose take very seriously. This is the water that feeds their farm and irrigates the organic vegetable garden that supplies their family too.
They have been a partner with FAFCoffees since 2008 and are now local leaders, bringing in more and more neighbours to produce specialty coffee with sustainability and total quality. Their energy in projects such as building new infrastructure for drying and storing coffee and teaching their neighbours to roast and brew are turning the coffees coming out of Sitio Siriema and its surroundings into thoroughbreds. Ivan and Rose, the lovebirds of Sitio Seriema, have married much more than each other, they are bringing the story of the mountain, written by their families over the past three generations into the future.
