Helcio has been working with coffee since he was 15 years old. In 1976, Helcio married Glycia Pereira Carneiro, and began to manage the farm Santa Lucia. At the time, there was no concern about the quality of coffee. The focus was simply on volume. They had no access to knowledge, technology or even information about markets for Specialty coffees.

In the '90s, Helcio was one of the founders of Aprocam (The Association of Coffee Producers from the Mantiqueira Region), the movement searching for quality in the region of Carmo de Minas.

This group of pioneers sought the help of experts and scientists to learn more about coffee quality and how to produce quality in large-scale. These experts shared with the group about the Pulped Natural Processing Method and how it would aid them in their goals. Helcio was a pioneer in the region. He was one of the first growers to get the facilities needed for this method.

Year after year, with the support of universities and scientists, as well as trips to other coffee producing countries, Helcio has continued to grow in specialty coffee production. We've cupped coffees from Santa Lucia since 2017. Nowadays, his name and farm are widely known in key markets.

"Our main challenge is in manpower. There will be a change in the characteristic of our coffee region due to this factor. We need to be prepared for this moment."

We source directly from producers when we can to make sure the most profit gets to the farmer. Our sourcing values are shown through our icons on each of our coffee labels and on the back of our coffee bags.

Our 340g and 2lb coffee bags are made entirely of from plant materials and breakdown in a relatively short period of time.

Can I put my used bag in the city compost?
Putting these bags in the city of Calgary's compost is not recommended, due to the current processing facility. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost (see further down the page for for info).

Alternative
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.
