Luiz Paulo established his experimental farm, Fazenda Santuario Sul, in 2015 with the intention of bringing a global perspective to one of the more traditional growing regions in Brazil. The farm is planted with varieties that aren't typically found in Brazil but offer excellent cup quality in their native lands: Sudan Rume, SL28, Yirgacheffe, Laurina, Geisha and many others. This lot is 100% Geisha, processed as a natural, and sun-dried on raised beds.
In Luiz Paulo's words: "The goal is to always be at the forefront of the market and offer more and more quality!" It certainly seems like he's doing just that. Even in a relatively short time, Fazenda Santuario Sul has become a perennial finalist in the Brazilian Cup of Excellence competition, most recently placing 4th in 2019.
