Sitio Bom Fim
Sitio Bom Fim is the first part of a 6 stage project by Minas Coffee to increase employment opportunities in the town of Caputira. Given the success of Sitio do Ouro & Sitio do Prata, Sitio Bom Fim will play a vital role in the growth of Minas Coffee into the Direct Trade sector. Sitio Bom Fim will not only produce and process coffee it will be part of 2 storage facilities aiding in the transport of coffee from our neighbouring facilities and order fulfilment to direct trade customers.
Sr. Lino and his family joined our team in 2016 after approaching Marcos looking for work, and having proven himself as a coffee guru. Sr. Lino is also in charge of our springs conservation and waterways reforestation programs. During his time at Minas Coffee Sr. Lino has rehabilitated 3 hectares of deforested land and has made significant contributions to subterranean water conservation saving numerous springs from depletion
Sr. Lino has been with Minas Coffee for 4 years, and we have already been able to secure him for a further 3 years, his contribution to our organic coffee development program and sustainability program has empowered our conservation projects and environmental sustainability.
