The story of Nakamura’s family began in 1929, when they came from Japan to Brazil looking for better life and work conditions. They initially settled in the municipality of Bastos, in the upper São Paulo region, and they have dedicated themselves to agriculture, cultivating various types of cereals and cotton. In the 1940s they moved to Londrina, in Parana state, and began growing coffee. In 1986 they moved to Chapada de Minas region, where they started the story of Nakamura’s Farm. They have worked a few years on the land preparation, watching all the environmental rules, in order to begin planting the coffee’s seedlings. They have struggled because of the weather, mainly because of the dry weather and the lack of rain. Along with that, there was a low in the coffee prices of the first crops, but they have overcome all those challenges. They always had a great collaboration, partnership and comprehension of the local community and neighbours of the region. They prioritize the local workforce and the harvest is made 100% manually, focusing not only on the best product, but also in helping the socioeconomic development of the region. Harvest begins in mid June and finishes between August and September. The cherries are dried naturally on the terrace over ten to twenty days, depending on the solar intensity. Focusing on sustainable development, they are using photovoltaic energy in order to meet the demand of the whole farm.
Chapada de Minas
It is a region of natural beauty and rich culture, which is also the birthplace of the coffees called Chapada de Minas.
The name is used to name the newest coffee growing frontier in Minas Gerais.
Coffee began to be cultivated in the region in 1970, when most of the country's crops were suffering from frost caused by the cold, which even affected the south of Minas.
Chapada de Minas coffees come mainly from a town called Capelinha, which was founded in 1913 and has about 38,000 inhabitants.
The cold microclimate of the city and its area of 900 to 1200 meters of altitude – at the highest point – made the place a great region for growing coffee.
