Rafael Valani is a young producer in the Caparaó region of Espírito Santo. He is in the process of taking over the family farm after his father, Jose Louri Valani, who managed this farm for 27 years. 

In Brazil, most coffee grows on massive plateaus at a low elevation and they are usually using mechanical harvesting. Coffee from the Espírito Santo region is very different. Here coffee grows on hilly slopes with varied landscapes in close proximity to the ocean which means the weather conditions are windier, colder and more wet. These elements along with the topography of this region gives the coffee a very unique and high-quality taste profile, even with altitudes well below 1000 masl, far outpacing coffees coming from warmer and drier parts of Brazil. They also pick all coffee by hand to make sure only the perfectly ripe cherries get processed.  

Another distinctive feature of the Espírito Santo region is that it is dominated by small landholders and family farms, much different from the otherwise sprawling estates of wealthy landowners in other regions in Brazil.  

The variety of this coffee, Catucai 785 is a cross between Catuai and hybrid variety Icatu. Catucai is known for its high productivity and resistance to leaf rust.
