History of the farm
The producer followed in his father’s footsteps in producing co ee. His father also produced bananas and sugarcane, using the latter to make cachac’a.
Jose had his first coffee fields at 11 years of age and his father encouraged him, with the help of their workers, to plant 5000 trees in 1984.
Since then, he has been perfecting his work by acquiring knowledge about working with coffee. He has several coffee farms, one of which is located in the Serra da Mantiqueira, which ensures high-quality coffees, some of which are considered specialty.
In 2004 he met Joa_o Meirelles, who works with quality and cupping, through the Rio Verde Regional Cooperative (Cocarive).
In 2005, 2006 and 2010 Jose_ achieved success in BSCA competitions, and in 2005 and 2006 he was among the finalists in the international phase. Today the producer is active in the production of specialty coffees and is constantly learning about co ee cultivation and cup quality. He sells a good part of his production to CarmoCoffees.
