Julia Figueiredo is the 4th generation of coffee grower at CorreGo Das Pedras in the Figueiredo Family. Initially Julia had decided to study Psychology and pursue a different career but after her studies and spending time at home with the family at their 271ha farm she found that her passion and calling was coffee wanting to learn from her father and grandfather. Julia now works alongside her godfather ‘Lucio’ as they seek to drive the quality forward from the farm. In total the farm is planted with 169 ha of coffee and this specific lot comes from the Yellow Catuai varietal that has shown to give a sweet and balanced cup. The farm mainly uses mechanical collection for the coffees and after harvest the coffees are machine sorted by density and ripeness to determine what process is then done.

Salum is the only Burundian producer to own his own farm and washing stations in a country where 95% of the coffee industry is divided between 2 major players. His farm is located in Mbirizi. It is one of the largest in the country with some 7,000 trees. His 4 washing stations are Buzira, Shembati, Sehe and Butaganzwa. They are all located at altitudes of between 1,700 and 2,100 meters and Salum has a working relationship with over 8,700 farmers. In order to encourage his producers to harvest only very ripe cherries, Salum pays a much higher price for one kilo of cherries than the actual market price, in a country where the standard of living is among the lowest in the world. He has also set up his own transport company to control how his coffees are transported from the washing station to the port.
