This coffee is produced by Danilo Barbosa and his sons, Victor Marcelo and Sergio Ricardo. They inherited the farm from Danilo’s great-grandfather Elias, who started growing coffee in the 1930s for the family’s personal consumption. The Barbosas are passionate about coffee and believe that a great cup can change people’s lives for better. “Through this passion and love for the production we are able to spread this idea that coffee changes directly the life of all people involved, creating jobs from the plantation of the seeds to the final cup”, says Danilo.
The family has done an extensive research to improve the farm’s quality, studying several different varietals to find out the ones that best adapt to their terroir.
The farm is also certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Danilo sees his farm as part of the team: “Our entire team is highly informed about the impacts coffee production has on the environment and conscious that we must do whatever it takes to mitigate them. The environment is one of us, a part of our team. Our coffees are produced in a responsible way, both socially and environmentally”.
