Augusto is a member of APAS – The Alto da Serra Producers™ Association. Founded in 1996 by a group of small producers, their aim is to improve their production conditions and quality. Traceability, good agricultural practices and sustainability are the main pillars. Every year their members are amongst winning farms at Cup of Excellence Brazil. Mantiqueira has an ideal micro-climate: rainy during summer and dry during ripeness and harvesting periods. The mountainous area inhibits the use of machines, so coffee is selectively & carefully hand-picked.
