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, Catuai and Catucai.
To enhance the quality of the coffee Lucas’s knowledge was fundamental in the creation of home - made fertilizers.
The geographical location of Sao Lucas Farm is blessed with an abundant supply of freshwater, it is near the town Ribeirao Corrente – meaning Flowing Waters.
