Lindalva Vivenza comes from a family of coffee growers who have been producing coffee in Minas Gerais since the 1940s. The region’s climate is ideal for growing coffee with mild temperatures, high altitudes, abundant rainfall and fertile soils allowing cherries to ripen slowly and develop beautifully complex flavours.
Lindalva & her husband bought their first plantation in the Campos Altos municipality in 1998, shifting focus to Specialty Coffee in 2008. As their children grew, they too became involved in coffee production on the farm, inheriting the family’s passion and continuing their legacy for another generation. The plantation produces consistently high-quality lots due to their interest in constantly improving processing methods.
The Vivenza family also owns several other plantations around the region, establishing their company Vivenza Caffe Speciale, currently helmed by Lindalva’s adult children, in an effort to become an international reference for the sustainable production of specialty coffees. The care and passion they share with their customers has also been recognised by the industry, ranking within the Top 50 Brazilian Coffees in the Illy Coffee Quality Competition.
