Background

Fazenda Santa Cecilia, a single estate belonging to Pedro Veloso and his family, a third generation coffee producer from Carmo do Paranaiba, Cerrado region in Minas Gerais. The family has been producing coffee in this privileged area for over 160 years. The farm is 1,270 hectares and 70% is planted in coffee. The rest are protected forests and reservoirs. All of the coffee is irrigated, and fertilizers are delivered through the irrigation system. 

Mr. Veloso has been involved in coffee all of his life, and is truly dedicated to produce high quality coffee without sacrificing yields. He lives on the farm and spends his early mornings visiting the farms, supervising harvesting, processing and then later in the day he heads to the trading room in Carmo, where he is personally attending calls from overseas customers.
