Now it was Georgia's turn to visit her old companion, Afonso Lacerda, at the Rio Forquilha Farm in Alto do Caparaó. Beside his wife Altilina, Afonso received Georgia for a visit in the farm and to take a look at the coffee preparation.

This year, we wil again be able to share with our customers/coffee geeks, the famous Florada de Março Coffee. This out of season blooming, only happens in Serra do Caparaó due to the very mild temperatures.

It is now three years since Lucca offers customers the Rio Forquilha Farm Coffee. Our first batch was bought in 2015, when Afonso had not yet received the Coffee of the Year title and also had not been a finalist in the Cup of Excellence. But even after so much success, the generosity of Afonso and family did not let Lucca´s coffee fans go out of the bags!

Once in Caparaó, one could not miss a visit to Johny Lacerda, from the Santa Rita Ranch and Fredy Ayres, from the Cafeteria.

This time it was our turn to wonder on the Florada de Março, typical of the Serra do Caparaó region. A late harvest with many sensorial surprises!
