Mom's House: Beautiful orchids outside the room I stayed. Offices of Fazenda Brauna are on the 2nd story. Mom is a doctor who works with farms, doing mostly routine physicals required by the government. Monica is the oldest sister who handles much of the office work, the backbone of the farm. Joao and Aphonse are out on the farm or dealing with their small roasted coffee business. They even have a cousin Elena with a cafe who sells only Brauna coffee. She is a fantastic Braista too, spending time training in the PNW with some excellent companies.
