    This natural Yellow Catuai tastes like the chocolate dessert from your favourite restaurant. It's rich in flavour and smooth in texture, with very low acidity, loads of mouthfeel and comforting, chocolate and almond flavour qualities. You'll find it drinks well on its own or is great with some cold or steamed milk. This is a classic coffee.

    At the Farm, Santa Lucia
    Helcio has been working with coffee since he was 15 years old. In 1976, Helcio married Glycia Pereira Carneiro, and began to manage the farm Santa Lucia. at that time, there was no concern about the quality of coffee, the focus was simply on volume. They had no access to knowledge, technology or even information about markets for Specialty coffees.

    In the 90’s, Helcio was part of the movement that started searching for quality in the region of Carmo de Minas, being one of the founders of Aprocam – Association of Coffee Producers from the Mantiqueira Region.

    This group of pioneers sought the help of experts and scientists to know the actual quality of coffees and how to produce quality in large-scale. These experts shared with the group about the Pulped Natural Processing Method and how it would be helpful on their wish. Helcio was one of the first growers to get the facilities needed for this method, being a pioneer in the region.

    Year after year, with the support of universities and scientists, as well as trips to other coffee producing countries, Helcio has continued getting better in the production of specialty coffees. We've cupped coffees from Santa Lucia since 2017. Nowadays his name, and his farm also, are already known in key markets.

    "Our main challenge is in manpower, there will be a change in the characteristic of our coffee region due to this factor. And we need to be prepared for this moment"
