Fazenda Sao Lucas is farmed by the sixth generation of coffee
growers. Lucas Lancha de Oliveira opted to follow in his parents’
footsteps studying agriculture and becoming an agronomist. This
experience proved of great value to the family business. Lucas also
served in the Brazilian armed forces.
In many ways Sao Lucas is a unique Coffee Farm. Lucas brought
the dynamism of his military service and combined that with the
knowledge gained from his studies which contributed greatly
towards the unique chocolate, cocoa and milky qualities in his
coffee, making it remarkable and distinct. On the Sao Lucas farm
the coffee varietals grown are Mundo Novo, To enhance the quality
of the coffee Lucas’s knowledge was fundamental in the creation of
home – made fertilizers.
