Coffee production in Poço Fundo is passed on from generation to generation. Coffee is grown with great care and love, because it is part of the history of each person involved in family farming. Because it is mountain coffee, the handling requires a lot of effort, and the drying process is natural, in terraces. The result is a coffee with an average SCA score of 82, chocolate and sustainable, that annually is among the finalists in the Fairtrade quality competition. It is worth pointing out that fair trade coffee is a special coffee that contributes to economic, environmental, and social development.
