My name is Caio.
I’m a former coffee farmer from Brazil and still a partner with relatives in this business that has been in our family for 5 generations since my great-grandfather.
I am also, a Digital Fine Artist, sculptor, and writer based in São Paulo state’s countryside.
Our coffee business is run in an enterprise model now and I’m a member of the board of associates.
We all have lived and breathed Brazilian coffee since a young age, mostly because our grandfather was a fanatic about the art of breeding coffee trees.
My formal studies are related to communications, design, architecture, and art in general. I also have over 20 years of web design experience, which made me take a step further and join both, my family work and design, into a new journey.
In 1984, after attending a few computer programming courses, I left architecture college in São Paulo to learn Computer Graphics at the Academy of Art University (formerly College) in San Francisco where I also joined some training in design and colors.
In the early 90’s I worked as a producer, screenwriter, conceptual designer and sound concept director in some Brazilian film productions.
In the mid 90’s, after moving to the countryside to take care of my farm, the internet became a new challenge and an over-800 page farming website was created by Agro Virtual, a family company for which I was both a creator and director.
Since then my artistic activities have become increasingly more virtual, concentrating today, 90% of my work.
As a digital fine artist, I remained semi-amateur until 2010, when I embraced, as a designer and colleague, a partnership with my daughter in our studio, CJunqueira – Surface Pattern Design.
I also have several artwork galleries on the internet where a number types of prints can be purchased online.
Having been involved with coffee production all my life, and not understanding why the Brazilian coffee community doesn’t make a stronger direct effort to market our great and delicious coffee in foreign countries, I took upon myself to, at least, create this website and try to make some of our voices heard outside Brazil.
This website will be the result of many hours of deep conversation with my coffee gurus, friends that are also farmers, on how to
show the average coffee drinker how wonderful Brazilian coffee can be.
Thank you very much for your attention.
