The São Luiz Estate is a coffee farm that's both steeped in history and embraces modernity, with centuries-old agricultural tradition, and more than five decades in the coffee industry.
Manoel Velloso dos Reis, a visionary, took over his father's land and imagined the potential for a new opportunity: producing coffee in the 1960s. Later, his son Fausto do Espírito Santo Velloso began investing in quality coffee. Now the team at the São Luiz Estate is blazing a trail in the young Brazilian coffee-producing region, Cerrado Mineiro.
Currently, Fausto's daughter, Ana Cecília Velloso is managing the farm. She started her career in coffee in 2014, with coffee farming embedded in her DNA. Her grandfather is one of the pioneers of coffee farming in the Cerrado Mineiro region, planting coffee in the late 1970s in Carmo do Paranaíba. Ana Cecília, in addition to being a producer, is responsible for selling the family's specialty coffees.
