Claudia’s history with coffee began more than 150 years ago, when her great-grandfather acquired a property in
Pedralva-MG. He planted the first coffee plantation, and from there, their love for the culture has spread to the
present day, with their children (the 5th generation) also starting to be interested in coffee.
Since she was a child, she has participated in the daily coffee business, however, life has made her follow other
paths. She has lived for 16 years in Sinop-MT to take care of other family businesses and to practice the law profession.
In 2017 she returned to her origins, she returned to live in Minas seeking to help her father and her sister Cristiana in
the management of Pedra Preta Farm.
She started to dedicate herself fully to coffee farming, which she fell in love with even more. So, she started to focus on new knowledge aiming at quality, productivity,
sustainability, well-being of the employees and environmental preservation. She has followed the steps of her father, Antonio Fortes Bustamante, a visionary, innovative
farmer, who today, at 87 years old, still works tirelessly with many dreams and plans to carry them out.
