In 1977 Dr. Flavio Pentagna Guimarães buys Fazenda São Lourenço with a big dream: to produce one of the best coffees in the world. Thus begins the story of Guima Café. Brasis and Santa Rita farms appeared in the sequence, both in the same region. Over time, they have built a solid culture, sustained by the commitment to continuous improvement, valuing employees, opportunities regardless of their gender, training and innovation. A commitment to show, every day, that it is possible to optimize operations and, at the same time, produce coffees with special nuances and with great care and dedication.
Fazenda Brasis houses a very special garden of exotic varieties of coffee and makes it something truly special.
The detailed look and the obstinacy for quality are characteristic of the women who manage Guima Café. Besides them, there is a diverse team, with complementary profiles and aligned values. They always believe in the strength of learning and in the discovery and implementation of new techniques. An innovative management approach, with the support of all the employees.
