Fazenda Sao Lucas is farmed by the sixth generation of coffee growers. Lucas Lancha de Oliveira opted to follow in his parents’ footsteps studying agriculture and becoming an agronomist. This experience proved of great value to the family business. Lucas also served in the Brazilian armed forces.

In many ways Sao Lucas is a unique Coffee Farm. Lucas brought the dynamism of his military service and combined that with the knowledge gained from his studies which contributed greatly towards the unique chocolate, cocoa and milky qualities in his coffee, making it remarkable and distinct. On the Sao Lucas farm the coffee varietals grown are Mundo Novo, Catuai and Catucai.

To enhance the quality of the coffee Lucas’s knowledge was fundamental in the creation of home – made fertilizers.
The geographical location of Sao Lucas Farm is blessed with an abundant supply of freshwater, it is near the town Ribeirao Corrente – meaning Flowing Waters. It is situated in the region of Alta Mogiana, at an altitude of 1020 above sea level and has 50 hectares of preserved rainforest. It enjoys 1,000 to 2,000mm of annual rainfall

It is UTZ and Rainforest Alliance Certified. Proof indeed that only the highest standards are deemed acceptable. Whether it be from hand picking the coffee safety equipment use to every other aspect of running the farm. That includes the treatment afforded their own small herd of cattle, used primarily to produce the farm’s own compost. Certifications such as Rainforest and UTZ endorses the production of farm-made its fertilizers yet farms few makes its own.
