The journey of the Cabeceira do Córrego Engenho da Serra Farm began in the 1970s when its founder, José Humberto de Andrade, one of the pioneers of coffee in the region, acquired his first lands in Carmo do Paranaíba, Minas Gerais. 

 Today, the farm is managed by the founder’s family, under the careful administration of Sandra Soeli de Andrade along with her nephew Lucas Santos. The focus now is on renewal, never forgetting the tradition and its history. 

Ninety of the farm’s 135 hectares are planted with Red Catuai, which flowers between September and October for the July and August harvest. Cabeceira do Córrego Engenho da Serra sits between 1100 and 1200 meters above sea level, with an average temperature of 22° C and an average annual production of 2,500 bags. The higher elevation and climate conditions of cool evenings and sunny, warm days allowing slower maturation of the cherries.

This lot of Red Catuai coffee underwent Natural processing. Catuai was made by the Instituto Agronomico (IAC) of Sao Paulo State in Campinas, Brazil by crossing Mundo Novo and Caturra varieties. Catuai coffees are cultivated widely across Brazil, and are known for their high productivity potential.
