Producer Story:

Caique de Paula da Mata left his parents' farm at the age of 17 to follow his dream to become an engineer. After many years in the state of São Paulo where studied and worked as an electrical engineer, Caique saw his life change course when the company where he worked declared bankruptcy. At the same time, his parents Menequele and Nadia were experiencing serious financial difficulties in the countryside, so it was only natural that Caique would come back to help his parents with the farm. Since he has been involved, Sítio Morro Vermelho has gained new colors with the addition of plantations and the interest in specialty coffees.
