"My love for growing coffee goes beyond this life''

Coffee Producer Jean Vilhena Faleiros

A glimpse of its history and its coffee experience

My dedication to coffee growing began when I was born, because God chose me to be born in Ibiraci in the region of Morro Alto, which for me is one of the best places to produce specialty coffees in Brazil.
I come from a family that has been growing coffee for more than 100 years and my love for coffee growing goes beyond this life. more than 30 years producing coffee.
A critical point for me is the setbacks caused by atmospheric phenomena such as droughts, hailstorms or frost, which are very drastic changes that affect crops.
A moment of special satisfaction in my work is having a cup of coffee, that is when the coffee reaches its greatest potential and expresses our work, the care and respect we have given to the coffee fruit.
