The tradition of coffee production has been in the Barbosa Family since the twentieth century. A family of farmers - everyone from father, mother, sons, daughters and in-laws work to the same end. Danilo Barbosa, jointly with his sons, represent the fifth generation of family coffee production.
The Rainforest Alliance farm is located in Minas Gerais, Cerrado Region, characterized by its altitude and climate. The conditions led to research by the farm on varietals, with a subsequent focus on Red and Yellow Catuai. Working with natural and pulped natural processes, they have also been experimenting with honey processing.
"My sons and I believe in a speciality revolution that a beverage produced with dedication can cause to the lives of the people who consume it. For us, coffee goes beyond caffeine to get energy and a drink that warms up. Our efforts and hard work can have a direct impact on the final cup."
