“Our family has been in the coffee-growing industry for generations, passing from great-grandmother to great-grandson, all within coffee cultivation. In times of crisis, it is important to add value to our product, so we have sought to constantly adapt and improve, both in cultivation and in post-harvest process. Our priority is to produce quality coffee while always taking care of the environment and well-being of our employees.” Andreia Ribeiro Silva
The region has around 4,500 farmers cultivating a combined area of 210,000ha. The Cerrado Mineiro presents a dry climate during the harvest period, which causes the coffee to suffer less from humidity after harvesting, allowing for a consistent drying process. The region, which covers 55 municipalities in total, achieved the Denomination of Origin in 2013 and was the first region in the country to receive this recognition.
