ABOUT
Marco Angelo Scalco was born in the rural area of Poço Fundo, Brazil and has been growing coffee for 15 years with the help of his wife, Ana, and brother Paulo. Mr. Scalco, a third-generation coffee producer, inherited his farm from his father when he retired in 2012 after 50 years of producing coffee. Mr. Scalco believes that although his overall production might be smaller than some, the quality of his coffee more than makes up for it. “If your production is limited, you better have higher quality in order to keep up with high production costs and give a decent life to your family” he says. Sitio Colinais located in Cachoeirinha, just outside of Poço Fundo, where the community coordinates harvest schedules so they can help each other avoid expensive labor costs. Their model of sharing machinery, warehousing, and other resources is an inspiration to other communities nearby.
