Simone Borges began at Sitio Canarinho as a coffee picker, where she met farmer Luiz Carlos. Fast forward to today Simone, Luiz and their two kids all work together on the farm where she is proud to say she planted the very first coffee tree!
Simone has always been searching for new ways to improve quality and focus on organic farming. In 2019 she worked hard to produce her own microlot, where alone she managed every stage from picking to processing.
Simone took 2nd place in the Florada Premiada Award with this very special micro lot scoring 90.40. The Florada Project is an initiative designed to give visibility to the work carried out by women within the industry, in partnership with the International Alliance of Women in Coffee. We are very lucky to share with you such an empowering coffee!
