Fazenda Tijuco is located in the Chapada Diamantina region, in the city of Piatã, Bahia. At 1268 masl, it is the highest city in the Brazilian North/Northeast. It is also considered the coldest city, with temperatures that range from 2°C to 17°C in the winter. With the encouragement of this father, Antonio Rigno de Oliveira, the producer acquired the property 10 years ago when he started producing specialty coffee.
Coming from a coffee-producing family and with his father’s help, he soon began to enjoy working with coffee cultivation and started investing in quality, taking advantage of the privileged location of the city of Piatã.
The harvest is done manually, using local labor, the majority women. Well-ripened coffee cherries are picked and transported by tractor to the patio for drying.
The entire drying process is done according to technical guidance. Then the coffee is warehoused in a manner to best preserve the quality obtained.
With his acquired experience and with the help of his father, the producer has won several awards over the years, being a perennial finalist in the Cup of Excellence, and achieving his best result of third place in 2014.
