Chapada de Minas


Luciana Valias Meirelles Damasceno Ferreira

Coffee variety

Yellow Catuaí, Red Catuaí and Mundo Novo




The Valias farm is located in the municipality of Aricanduva in the Minas Gerais region known as Chapada de Minas. A place where most of the coffee production is concentrated. Owner Luciana Valias has managed the farm for about 12 years. There are 40 hectares with 60 thousand coffee trees planted at an altitude of 1030 meters. In the beginning, the biggest challenge was the lack of knowledge of the culture since the producer used to have psychology as a profession. He gave up his life in the city of São Gonçalo do Sapucaí, and family life to continue the work that his father had already started on the farm. Between mistakes and successes, he continued with the support of his father and thus reached a surprising quality. Among the varieties are Yellow Catuaí, Red Catuaí, and Mundo Novo. Since she was a little girl, she always observed the care that her grandfather and father had with the field to maintain the quality of the grain that was harvested from the farm. He understood that he needed to know more about the production of specialty coffees. To reach the exact quality of the coffee, Luciana faced many challenges and each one of them was overcome with great success. For the producer, today it is a pride to be able to produce coffees that elevate the palate.
