About your grower

Gil still remembers the singing of the ox cars carrying the coffee in the farm of his grandfather. Created in the coffee plantation, Gil did't think twice about continuing in the culture. In 1995 he planted his first 6 hectares, from there to here it expanded the area and always sought to invest in quality. The characteristics of Cerrado Mineiro terroir and the rigorous post-harvest processes are his secrets to high quality coffees.
