My passion for coffee started when I was very young. I am from Brazil where coffee culture is widespread and I grew up listening to my father telling me about his childhood at the coffee farm - a production made only from natural coffee where the cherries were hand-picked.


Later on, when I arrived in Switzerland - and after finishing my Tourism & Hospitality school -  I had the opportunity to work for a trading company on the department of green coffee quality control and sensory evaluation. Also, I was able to guide groups in producing countries, such as Costa Rica and Brazil, to show the coffee processing from cherry to cup.


Botanica was born from a desire to promote coffee culture and pass on my knowledge to coffee enthusiasts  and professionals, as well as to serve as a link with all those who produce it.
