About the farm:
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 responsibilty 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 microlots offerings for this harvest.
Voilà revolutionized the specialty coffee industry by reinventing the way traditional instant coffee is made; each cup is meticulously handcrafted from the highest quality specialty coffees in the world, upholding the quality from farm-to-cup. The instant coffee can be taken anywhere, whether you're on the top of a mountain, camping with the family, or flying half way around the world - all you need is hot water - to make an amazing cup of coffee.
The partnership between Proud Mary Coffee and Voilà all started with a specific coffee. “When we first discovered Voilà, we decided to put it through the paces and turn a Panama Gesha, one of the most expensive, rare coffees on the planet into instant and see what happens. ‘We wondered, would it still taste good?’ Turns out it does and the results blew us away. Long flights to and from Australia will never be the same" Nolan Hirte, Proud Mary Coffee Founder & Owner.
