The Garcia family (Andre Luiz, Natalia & Beneficio) are a family of coffee producers who live and work along the Estrada Royal in the tropical climate in the Serra do Campo das Vertentes, Brazil. The highlands are rich in springs and the shallow and acidic well-drained soils of volcanic origin with yellow-red land are perfect for growing a well balanced and sweet espresso coffee.
The Garcia's speciality coffee journey began in 2013, when Andre took over his father's farm. Embedded in the deep understanding that the microclimate in the region was perfect for growing coffee, with mider temperatures, good altitude and a flatter terrain - they were set to reach new coffee highs.
Andre and his wife, Natalia, became experts in speciality coffees, mapping and carrying out various studies and experiments for growing the highest quality coffee beans. Their use of sustainable techniques, help them make the most of existing natural resources - to grow the best coffee and provide jobs and a livlihood for farmers who depend on the farm.
