This coffee represents the flavours of South of Minas Gerais. It was a project done by Danielle and Ana Elisa who also runs a farm in Santana da Vargem with her brothers Wander and Wagner.
Granddaughter and coffee farmer's daughter, she started managing the farm with her father in 2016, as early as 2018, when her parents moved to another city and her sister moved to Canada, she had to take over the management alone. Since then, she has been working tirelessly implementing sustainable practices, improving post-harvesting methods in order to show what is most special about Fazenda da Serra's coffee. Traceability of all steps involved in harvesting are available for all lots produced in Fazenda da Serra.
Ana Elisa Inacio de Brito
Monte Verde farm located in the municipality of Santana da Vargem in the south of Minas Gerais, a region known as the "Mountains of Minas". The farm grew and modernized under the innovative eye of the family's matriarch, and all who work here are treated like family.
From the management of the crops to the harvest and post-harvest, taking advantage of the natural vocation of the properties to produce high-quality coffees at altitudes varying between 890m to 1070m always with the concern for the environmental preservation, welfare and evolution of all. The natural aptitude of the properties and the region added to the commitment of the owners and the will to produce always more and better, allowed to cross crises and overcome difficulties with creativity and responsibility, combined with all the work involved in the constant search for the perfect coffee.
