About the Estate
The farmer Sebastião Ovídio (Neno) started his coffee production activity in 1979, with his wife Lucilene. At that time, they started with only 3 hectare of coffee plantation. They worked very hard since the beginning to increase their production with quality, since coffee became a passionate way of life for the couple. In 2000, Sebastião realized a dream of his self: he bought a piece of coffee land that belonged to his grandfather 50 years earlier. Long time ago his young father - also called Sebastião - used to help his grandfather - Joaquim Ovídio - in the coffee production in these lands, but they needed to sell it in a time when Sebastião was a little boy. Now, it's been 15 years that the farmer regained this historical coffee plantation for Ovídio's family.
Nowadays Serra Azul Estate produces around 320 bags of high quality coffees, handled by a family team composed by Sebastião, Lucilene and his brother, José Carlos Reis.
