São Luiz Estate is a coffee farm that's both steeped in history, and embraces modernity; with a centuries old agricultural tradition, and more than five decades in the coffee industry. The team at São Luiz Estate are blazing a trail in a young Brazilian coffee producing region, Cerrado Mineiro. Manoel Velloso dos Reis; a visionary, took over his father's land and imagined the potential for a new business: coffee in the 1960s. Later, his son Fausto do Espírito Santo Velloso, began investing in quality coffee.
Currently, Fausto's daughter, Ana Cecilia Velloso is managing the farm. In Ana’s words “Lucio and me are in charge of the management of the farm, with the responsibility of perpetuating this legacy through our young and innovative spirit, passion and enthusiasm. We produce high quality specialty coffees based on a model orientated to the valuation of people, in a true and transparent relationship with our customers and in constant search for new technologies and process efficiency”. It’s no surprise this coffee caught out attention and made it onto our list of favorite micro-lots offerings for this harvest.
Roasting days: Proud Mary roast Monday-Friday during normal business hours. To ensure freshness of coffee, best to order early in the week as postal services and couriers do not operate on weekends.
