Producer Story:

A pioneer in coffee-growing in the Borges community, town of Camacho, Mr. Divino Borges began his journey in coffee in 1978 by planting 3 hectares with his wife Mrs. Lourdes. Thanks to coffee, the couple was able to raise 14 children.

Waldir always enjoyed accompanying his father in the fields and owes a lot to his father’s teachings on the necessary care with the coffee plants. After the death of Mr. Divino, the farm was divided by Waldir, who renamed his part as Fazenda Vassourão, and his brothers and sisters. The Borges family still works closely together carrying out all activities with great care to produce special coffees and this union has been fundamental for the success of all in coffee growing.
