Fazenda Santa Lucia is run by Helcio Carneiro. A coffee producer since he was a teenager, he was part of the movement that researched and promoted quality coffee in the region of Carmo de Minas. Winner of the 6th place in the 2016 Cup of Excellence (COE) program, Helcio is famed for the success and consistency of his yellow bourbon coffee. He started growing coffee in 1970 when he was 20 years old, continuing the family tradition of working on coffee farms (he also married the daughter of the previous owners of Fazenda Santa Lucia). Together, he and his wife Glycia Pereira Carneiro run the farm and are bringing up their 4 children in the coffee industry, hoping that they will one day take over the farm.
