Coffee ProducerLuciana Alves Leandro Melo

A glimpse of its history and its coffee experience

I dedicate myself to the cultivation of coffee for the love of my family. Our work makes us want to grow and improve our processes every day. Dedicating ourselves to producing quality coffees is our daily fuel.
In 1995 my husband planted his first crop at the Farm, since then I also became a coffee producer.
The most critical moments for me are the ones that happen during the coffee processing, when you have more work and more people involved in the process.
The processing of the coffee, in spite of being the critical part, is also the most important part, in this stage is when we raise the quality of the coffee through the processes.
This same stage is also a very meticulous moment in the production stages of our coffees.
