A short story about the farmer:
Eduardo Ferreira de Sousa is the owner of Fazenda Pedra Preta, which has been in the family for almost 50 years, and has been passed down through three generations. Coffee cultivation on the farm started in the 1980s when Mauro Mendes Ferreira (Eduardo’s grandfather) purchased the property to begin his dream of growing coffee. The land held significant sentimental value to Mauro as he had been visiting ever since he was a small child when he used to cross the farm on horseback every day to travel to school. He embodied an authentic Gentleman of Mantiqueira de Minas, often spending hours upon hours contemplating the mountains and landscape of the region on the farm. When Mauro had the opportunity to acquire the property, he began his dream of planting his very own coffee roots in the land he had desired for over 40 years.
