The tradition of coffee production has been in the Barbosa Family since the twentieth century. Mr. Barbosa ancestors, his great-grandparent Elias Barbosa passed it on to his grandparent Claudio Barbosa de Paula and from him to his father, Jairo Barbosa de Paula and now Mr. Barbosa works with his generation, his sons Vítor Marcelo and Sergio Ricardo. When Danilo says family business, he means husband, wife, father, son, and daughter in law all working together, so the office is like a big home where everybody shares the same dream, supports each other, learn and grow together. The office is located in Carmo do Paranaíba, Estate of Minas Gerais, where the team is composed of ten people, cooperating to deliver the best coffee.
From the choice of the varietal to the harvest season, the Barbosa family works hard to deliver the best coffee. All the processes are closely watched, and the Quality Control team follow all the stages of the traceability program, from the tree to the warehouse, and from the warehouse to the world.
