At 28 years old, Kleumon Silva Moreira is a very young coffee producer. Over the last decade, he has worked alongside Antônio Rigno – widely regarded as the best producer in the Piatã area – learning everything he could about coffee production, from planting through to processing.
In 2016, Kleumon purchased ten hectares of land to start his own coffee farm. He now has almost one hectare of coffee planted, with plans to plant two more hectares in 2021. He is meticulous in his farming practices, implementing much of what he learned from Antônio.
At harvest time, Kleumon’s picking team consists mainly of family members, including his mum who lives nearby. The coffee is hand-pulped at a friend’s mill and then processed using the pulped natural method at São Judas Tadeu, Antônio’s farm.
Kleumon represents the next generation of producers in this famous coffee-growing region. We hope to continue offering his coffees for many years to come!
