Located at an altitude of about 1,100 MASL and with an
annual rainfall average between 1,250mm and 1,400mm, Sr.
Niquinho farm has native forests, riparian woods around and
water sources, which are fully preserved.
The coffees grown there are processed in the sister farm,
named Irmas Pereira, due to closeness of the properties
and the large processing capacity of this farm.
When Luiz Paulo’s grandfather died, his family inherited his coffee farms. Luiz Paulo’s parents decided to honor and
recognize the career and trajectory of this great grower, by giving their son a coffee farm called Sr. Niquinho, which was
actually his grandfather’s nickname.
When asked about the future, Luiz Paulo says: “For me producing a sustainable coffee and having sustainability in
mind is a vital part for any coffee grower, both nowadays and in the future. We must have the responsibility of producing
with quality and on a consistent basis, and protecting the environment that surrounds us, as well as the society that we
live in. By doing our work with these rules in mind, we will be able to offer exactly what our very demanding clients
worldwide desire from a coffee supplier.”
