||The coffee culture in the district of “Matão” has reached 100 years this year according to reports of the oldest. The culture was passed in from generation to generation. The group started in 2013, but the real change began in 2015 after the first win at the Paraná Quality Competition, coffee produced by Eloir Nogueira de Souza. After the Contest, the group got even more together, so they started producing quality coffees. The following year, with another prize from the producer Laura de Freitas, some members of the group decided to make the selective harvest of natural coffee, an idea that worked well and had a lot of visibility and became a reference for work, unity
and dedication. The work is being recognized by the buyers, because the added value to this coffee produced by women today is much greater, and with this appreciation the group is growing, before this repercussion the group had 15 women and today has 24 members.
