Coming from completely non-traditional coffee farmers, Fazenda Um began in an abandoned farm in South of Minas Gerais in 2009. Stefano Um, son of South Korean Immigrants in Brazil, was never involved with producing coffee in his life until he began thinking about retirement. Stefano lived and grew up in the country side in Korea before moving to Brazil at the age of 12. He always had wonderful memories of his childhood in a rice field in South Korea. With Stefano's deep desire to live in the countryside, Fazenda Um began unpretentiously as a retirement plan. However, once he began producing coffee with deep passion for high quality, and traceability when exporting his lots to his first clients, he saw the unlockable potential of high quality Brazilian coffee. In 2014, the Um family, together with sons Boram and Garam, embarked in the specialty coffee journey. Boram specialized in coffee quality by becoming a Q-grader and selecting to work on innovations for coffee processing. Garam focused his education on SCA courses and teaching thousands of baristas and coffee enthusiasts in Brazil. Together, Um Coffee Co. was founded. This is a coffee shop, roastery and coffee school in the largest city in Brazil, Sao Paulo. Being in the heart of the big city, Um Coffee Co quickly became a reference in specialty coffee culture in Brazil, being voted the best coffee shop in Sao Paulo 3 times. Um Coffee Co's secondary property of 28 hectares, Fazenda Um EspĂ­rito Santo, began in 2015. Located in a region that resembles the high mountains of Central America, in 2019 this property was acquired by the Um Family to work with some of the most exclusive and complex terroirs. EspĂ­rito Santo today has some of the most promising coffee lots due to its similarity to other renowned regions of the world. The soil provides unique flavours, such as soft umami and high sweetness impact like sugarcane. Due to it's complexity and distinctive microclimate, Um Coffee is producing new lots as well as developing processing techniques in order to unlock the regions full potential.
