History

Julia started her story with coffee in 2015, she is the fourth generation of coffee farmers in the Figueiredo family.
After graduating from university in psychology and after taking care of her sick mother, she decided that she would not act as a psychologist, as she had the desire to accompany and learn from her father and grandfather and maintain the beautiful trajectory of the Corrego farm. das Pedras.
And that's how she fell in love with coffee, with the stories and especially with the tradition of her family, which has always been producing coffee.
Nowadays, Julia works on the farm, in the company of her godfather Lúcio, and together they seek succession, bringing new ideas and technologies to maintain this legacy.
