Producer Danielle Fonesca is a granddaughter and daughter to coffee farmers. In 2016 Danielle started managing the family farm alongside her father and in 2018 fully took over managing the farm when her parents moved to another city and her sister moved to Canada. Since then, Danielle has been working tirelessly implementing sustainable practices and improving post-harvesting methods in order to show what is most special about Fazenda da Serra’s coffee. Traceability of all steps involved in harvesting are available for all lots produced in Fazenda da Serra.
Alternate Route Coffee has worked directly with Danielle and her sister Pricilla on a number of occasions to source and import various specialty coffees from Brazil.
