Urtiga, situated in Ilicínea within the Southern Minas Gerais region, is a coffee farm managed by Josias Cardoso. The farm, perched at an altitude of 1000 meters, spans 5 hectares and cultivates varieties such as Arara, Mundo Novo, and Paraiso.

The history of Urtiga is rooted in Josias Cardoso's familial legacy. In 1987, his father, a truck driver, invested in the farm with aspirations of financing a new truck through coffee cultivation. Unfortunately, a downturn in coffee prices thwarted this plan, allowing only the purchase of truck tires with the proceeds. During this period, Josias, then a student, actively contributed to the farm's operations.

In the contemporary context, Josias oversees Urtiga in collaboration with a dedicated team. His focus extends beyond cultivation to encompass the enhancement of coffee quality and a commitment to environmental preservation. Notably, each coffee stand on the farm is named after native trees, underscoring Urtiga's integration with its natural surroundings—Cedro, Ipê, Guatambu, among others.

Coffees are dried in the sun on drying terraces, between 10 and 25 days. After the end of drying, when it reaches between 11.3 and 11.8% of humidity, the coffee is processed (removal of the dry husk) and taken to the COCATREL warehouse.
