The Santa Luzia farm is a family endeavor headed by Jose Maria de Oliveira with the help of his children and the many families who work with him. Dedication to quality begins on the ground level--the whole farm is painstakingly organized by varietal, and their equipment is kept obsessively clean. This Red Catuai has a note of creamy cashew butter, heavy tannins in the finish, and lovely stone fruit sweetness throughout. 

In the time that we’ve worked with them the Oliveiras have become dear friends. We regularly receive pictures of their beautiful farm updating us on the latest harvest. They offer weekly classes for the children of their employees that improve computer literacy. Every year they throw a big party for the whole town at Christmas, and Ronaldo does a parade around the town dressed up as Papai Noel (Santa Claus) and has kids sit for photos with Santa. Their dedication and love for the craft of coffee extends from their delicious product out into the community around them.
