MORADA DA PRATA - BRAZIL
Maria Helena Dumont Adams is the fourth generation of coffee producer managing Morada da Prata farm. She is the great-niece of Santos Dumont, the father of aviation, who had in his blood a passion for innovation and knowledge. Morada da Prata started its activities in 1879 when Henrique Dumont acquired Arindeúva farm located 20km from Ribeirão Preto, state of São Paulo. Dumont invested in a number of innovations in production, making the most modern farm in South America with 5 million coffee trees, 96km of railroads and 7 locomotives, which made him known as the “King of Coffee.”
In 1894, Luis Dumont, one of the sons of Henrique Dumont, inherited the land and continued to produce coffee and in 1926 he obtained the Morada da Prata farm in Batatais, state of São Paulo. With the great knowledge acquired by his father, Luis was able to maintain and expand the coffee business.
Luis, left the business to his daughter Adelia, who passed it down to her daughter Maria Helena. When she inherited farm from his parents, Maria Helena courageously faced the mission of being responsible for the property. Maria is passionate about coffee trees, the flowering, the “red” fruits and loves to follow each harvest closely.
The property has 456 hectares, 144 are of a beautiful preserved native forest, where large animals roam freely, and typical Atlantic Forest species are protected from extinction. In a rich, very clayey soil, 146 hectares of coffee and 108 hectares of sugar cane are cultivated, as well as pastures and eucalyptus.
The local microclimate is very specific, with the presence of low clouds during winter mornings, which makes this mountain edge more humid and cooler. The rainfall pattern is good, at about 1,500 mm / year.
Morada da Prata Farm continues to apply innovative technologies mainly in the post-harvest, seeking to improve quality, respect and integration with nature, and maintain the 140-year tradition in coffee production.
“I don't know, I can't explain it. Coffee is in our vein. We like the coffee crop, the land. Walking through the coffee plantation, we recognize each foot.
They are different from each other. They are harmonious. The coffee plantation is like a bunch of friends together.” - Maria Helena Dumont Adams
