The owner of Fazenda Senhor Niquino is called Luiz Paulo, he has a degree in Business Administration from the “Faculdade Santa Marta”, in São Lourenço, and has been in the banking and finance sector for years.
In 2004, after the death of his grandfather, Luiz decided to change his life and return to his places of origin to take over the family business. Luiz Paulo quickly realizes that the region has a unique identity, a set of specific attributes that give the local coffee distinct flavours, which place it among the best in the world.
The name of the Fazenda, “Senhor Niquino” was given in honor of his grandfather, in fact Niquino was his nickname. The coffees grown in the Fazenda Senhor Niquino are then processed in the Irmas Pereira farm, both due to the close proximity of the two farms and because the coffee processing capacity of the Pereira farm is superior.
The synergy is upstream and makes the two companies accomplices, cousins and able to create an incredible agricultural product. With an average annual rainfall of between 1250 and 1400 mm, Senhor Niquino has native forests, woodlands and water springs, in perfect balance. For the future of the company Luiz Paulo says: “We must have the responsibility to consistently produce quality and to protect the surrounding environment, as well as the society in which we live”. Senhor Niquino is a classic yet elegant coffee, with good acidity and notes of tonka bean, hazelnut and licorice.
Perfect for the first morning or after lunch, great cleaning on the palate and very long finish. The archetype of what a great Brazilian café should be like.
