Sitio Capim Seco is owned and operated by Rafael Dias Pereira, who comes from a long line of coffee producers: His grandparents Isidro and Nazareth Pereira were among the first coffee producers in the region, and Rafael's mother and aunt own the nearby Fazenda Irmãs Pereira.
Rafael has three passions: family, horses, and specialty coffee. His passion for horses is partially how he got interested in managing farms: Before he was a coffee producer, he actually established a horse farm, where he breeds Brazilian Mangalarga Marchadors, a horse-racing favourite. When his equestrian endeavour became successful, he decided to invest some of the profits to the passion he shares with his family—coffee. He bought a small plot of land near his family's coffee lands, and since his first harvest in 2007, he has earned high cup scores for his lots.
