Agua Limpa farm is located in Serra da Mantiqueira region, with a small coffee plantation and the rest of the farm is dedicated to breeding activities.
The farm was purchased by my grandfather in the beginning of the 20th century, always keeping the coffee plantation and processing simple and natural, with much love and care. Since 1987 my father has divided the farm between our brothers and I – we always work with a care to preserve the environment.
All picked coffee is delivered at the patio daily to be sun-dried – we do not use a mechanical dryer. After being dried and prepared, we send it to the coop warehouse.
