Sebastiana de Oliveira Faria, known as Lelena, was born in 1947 in the region of Espera Feliz, south of Minas Gerais. She started with coffee very young at the age of 9 years old when her father got injured and was no longer able to work in the fields.
Today at the age of 71 and 64 years of uninterrupted work in coffee plantation, Lelena is responsible for the production of specialty coffees in her property along with her children, grand children and a brother. The Property is called ‘Sítio Moinho Grande’ with an average altitude of 1160 meters and has about 16 thousand coffee trees. Its drying structure is made of a greenhouse, a stone patio and African raised beds. She installed a pulper in 2015 and most of her coffees are pulped natural.
