Producer Profile

We're very happy to welcome Yuki Mimami's coffee back to menu after a few years.

In 2014, Yuki Minami returned from São Paulo to her hometown of São Gotardo in the Cerrado Mineiro region of Brazil to help with the family farm; Fazenda Santo Antonio. After working for large agriculture businesses she longed to do the kind of work that could have a positive impact on people’s lives. When she returned home she focused on leading projects in coffee traceability, post-harvesting techniques and farm certification with the goal of reaching the specialty market so that she could share the stories behind the cups of coffee produced by her family. In 2015, her coffee placed in the National Cup of Excellence competition. All of this culminated in Yuki founding her own company; Aequitas, dedicated to reproducing the success of her family’s farm for other producers by consolidating a network of people connected through coffee.

Cerrado Mineiro


Catuaí is the result of a genetic cross between Yellow Caturra and Mundo Novo, made by the Instituto Agrinomico of Sao Paulo, in Brazil. While it was first bred in 1949, it was released in Brazil in 1972. It comes in both red and yellow variations, and there are multiple genetic lines available in Brazil. Some of these lines are known for high output. Generally, Catuaí is known for its good quality potential at high altitudes and small size, which allows for greater planting density. This planting efficiency contributed to the intensification of full sun planting in Central America during the 70's & 80's. Unfortunately, Catuaí is highly susceptible to coffee leaf rust.
