Since 15 years of Helcio helped his mother in producing crops and benefiting coffee. In 1976, Helcio married with Glycia Pereira Carneiro, and began to manage the farm Santa Lucia. at that time, there was no real concern about the quality of the coffee. And neither they had access to knowledge, technology or even information about the market for Specialty coffees.
In the ’90s, Helcio was part of the movement that started searching for quality in the region of Carmo de Minas, being one of the founders of Aprocam – Association of Coffee Producers from the Mantiqueira Region.
This group of pioneers sought the help of experts and scientists to know the actual quality of coffees and how to produce quality in large-scale. These experts warned the group about the Pulped Natural Processing Method and how it would be helpful on their wish. Helcio was one of the first growers to get the facilities needed for this method, being a pioneer in the region.
Year after year, with the support of universities and scientists, as well as trips to other coffee-producing countries, Helcio kept getting better in the production of specialty coffees. Nowadays his name, and his farm also, are already known in key markets.
