Located in Mantiqueira de Minas region, near the small town of Lambari, “Dona Lourdes” and her family take great care of their “precious trees” as she likes to call them. During the harvest the coffees is collected manually before being placed on the patios for between 7 – 10 days until the coffee reaches below 11% moisture. The coffee is turned every 2-3 hours during the day to ensure an even drying. She is very concerned about the environment and specially the many water sources she has on her small property.
She is part of the AMECAFE Women’s producer group since 2017. The group have now been established for their second harvest. This group is formed of around 60 members and their goal is to share knowledge and educate each other about coffee production. They want to empower each other and their families by improving the quality of their lives through coffee.
