Fazenda Santa Alina is an 885 hectare farm in the Vale De Grama micro-region of Sao Paulo state. The farm is run by Lucia Maria da Silva Dias, whose family has owned the farm for 113 years. A forward-thinking producer who has focused on specialty coffee production since the year 2000, Lucia sees quality as a way to increase the income and potential of the estate, deliver better quality to her customers and to build meaningful long term relationships throughout the supply chain.
The farm is nestled between the broad mountain ranges that sweep the region which provides well defined seasons and a mild temperature which protects the plants throughout the flowering and fruiting cycle, and is home to 70 houses constructed to house the Italian immigrants who originally worked the fields. Today, the houses home 30 different families who work on the estate and contribute daily to the community at Vale de Grama.
Lucia runs a program of mixed mechanical and hand picking, with strict quality sorting, processing and drying protocols across the estate. This approach has paid dividends with a total of ten awards in quality competitions in the last four years, most recently taking 1st place in both the Natural and Pulped Natural categories in the 16th Vale de Grama Coffee Quality competition in 2019, and 2nd place in the 2019 Sao Paulo State Coffee Quality Competition in both Natural and Pulped Natural categories.
An easy-drinking coffee with a creamy mouthfeel, the Santa Alina is well balanced with medium acidity.
