3 of the Producers

JOSÉ CARLOS ALVES PINTO, Sebastião do Paraíso

José and his brothers have 4 farms in São Sebastião do Paraíso. In the 1990s, the brothers invested in technology with an aim to increase the cultivated area and renovate their crops (more adequate spacing, systematization, new varieties).

Their focus at the moment is an improvement in business management, and investing in processes, people and optimization to increase sustainability and excellence in the cup. The region has a tradition in coffee cultivation, with a good climate, altitude, soil and relief.

ADEMIR DONIZETE MOSCARDINI, Portal da Serra farm

Ademir is a smallholder farmer in Ibiraci, Mogiana.

It’s a family tradition that all started with Ademirs grandfather. Ademir and his family owned another farm in Mogiana for many years but moved to Ibirachi because of the farm’s excellent terroir for specialty coffee production.

MARCIO MARTINS FERREIRA, Monte Alto & Mimoso Farm

Marcio has two farms in Pedregulho, Mogiana. He started his first coffee crop at his father’s estate in 1983, which was dominated by dairy farming.

The good results from coffee over time meant that Marcio could leave behind the milk production of his father and focus solely on coffee cultivation, which has become the primary income for the family ever since.
