DESCRIPTION

 

Lúcio Gondim Velloso is young; however, he carries the DNA of coffee culture. His grandfather is one of the pioneers who planted coffee in the Cerrado Mineiro Region in the years of 1970, in Carmo do Parnaíba city, state of Minas Gerais. Lúcio is an agronomist and takes care of the 330 hectares, which produces about 13,000 bags per year; according to the coffee grower about 50% of his annual production fits the criteria of coffees of high quality.

 

Lúcio recognizes that the quality of his coffee passes through the excellent characteristics of the Cerrado Mineiro Region and is also the result of the work of the committed staff. Some of the postharvest employees have been working with the family for 20 years, always empowering and modernizing their concepts. In 2013 the coffee produced by Lúcio was the champion in category pulped natural at the 1st Prize of the Cerrado Mineiro Region.

 

The Cerrado Mineiro Region is a world recognized high quality coffee producing origin - the first “Designation of Origin” in Brazil, located in northwest of Minas Gerais State. Having well-defined seasons - a hot, wet summer and a pleasantly dry winter - is a strong characteristic of the region. The coffee plantations are cultivated in areas with altitudes varying between 800 and 1,300 meters, the result being high quality coffees with a unique identity.
