    Marco Angelo Scalco hails from the rural region of Poço Fundo in Brazil and has been cultivating coffee for 15 years alongside his wife, Ana, and brother, Paulo. As a third-generation coffee producer, Mr. Scalco inherited his farm from his father in 2012, who had spent 50 years growing coffee. Despite having a smaller overall production, Mr. Scalco prides himself on the exceptional quality of his coffee. He believes that high-quality produce is  essential to cover the high production costs and provide a decent livelihood for his family. The Sitio Colina farm is located in Cachoeirinha, just outside of Poço Fundo, where the community collaborates on harvest schedules to minimize labor expenses. The community's approach of sharing equipment, storage facilities, and other resources serves as a source of inspiration for neighboring communities.
