This microlot from Hélcio Carneiro Pinto of Fazenda Santa Lucia is a small selection of higher quality coffee kept separate from the rest of the farm's production. A soft, mellow acidity is livened up by a sweet cup of chocolate malt, toffee, and orange.

Hélcio has been working in coffee since he was 15 years old, helping his mother produce and process crops. In 1976, Hélcio married Glycia Pereira Carneiro and began to manage Santa Lucia. In the 1990s, Hélcio was one of the founders of Aprocam, a group of pioneers that began a movement for the pursuit of quality coffee in the region of Carmo de Minas. Aprocam introduced the idea of processing pulped naturals on Carmo de Minas and Hélcio was the first producer to get the machines for this process.

Since that development at Santa Lucia, Hélcio has worked with universities and scientists, and he has taken trips to other coffee-producing countries to further his knowledge of the production of specialty coffee.

Today, Hélcio and Fazenda Santa Lucia maintain a worldwide reputation for quality Brazilian coffees.

This coffee is a sweet and delicious cup that's hard to get enough of. Brew a big batch, you're going to want it.
