Nilza is produced by Nicolau Herzog, a descendant from Pomeranian immigrants that moved to Brazil- now part of the fourth generation coffee producers in his family. His great-grandfather, Ricardo Herzog, came from Germany- breaking ground on the property where til this day coffee agriculture is the main activity.

Around 1970, the farm was renovated according to the latest growing techniques and sown with resistant, high-yielding coffee varieties. Luciano Herzog, Nicolau’s father, continued the labour’s on the farm and taught Nicolau the skills for producing quality coffee. 17 of the farm’s 29 hectares are planted with coffee on the farm in the city of Itarana, Alto Jetibocas community.

Today, father and son work together, facing the difficulties of artisanal labor in order to carry out the process of selective harvesting and coffee de-pulping. Nicolau is motivated to continue passing on the family’s hard work from one generation to the next and maintain the family traditions of coffee production.
