Augusto is part of the fourth generation of Borges Ferreira family, a very traditional family of coffee growers. He was was raised in the middle of coffee crops, living with his parents on the farm.
In 2008, Augusto joined a group of friends who "breathed" coffee and dedicated their knowledge for quality. In 2010 he joined the APAS (Association of High Sierra Producers) which came in meeting with all the principles of world coffee production to "Sustainability".
