Luiz Rodriguez Saldanha, co-founder of Capricornio coffee, will be speaking on the Matão Women in Coffee project, a group of 24 female coffee producers from Matão in Brazil.
With selective picking being a rarity in Brazil, the project has seen their quality increase exponentially and their hard work was rewarded in 2015 when they placed first in the Paraná quality contest.
Like many producers in the world, these women had never tasted their own coffee, until recently. Now, they undertake cupping education programs, learning to identify lots that stand out in quality. For the future, the group wants to continue to increase the quality and production of coffee, as well qualify and prepare themselves to identify their own coffees.
We’ll finish by cupping some delicious coffees from the project as selected by Veneziano.
Tickets are free but you’ll need to RSVP to secure your spot!
