ABOUT THE ORIGIN
The Chapada de Minas is a small and beautiful region with stunning topography shaped by plateaus and river canyons. The flatter plateau areas promoted the mechanization of the region's coffee plantations. Coffee cultivation began in the 1870's, which brought significant economic benefit to the region by increasing employment opportunities. Among all coffee regions, this area is the most important for small producers and is essential to the local economy.
Most of the coffees from Chapada de Minas are natural processed, but washed coffee processing is growing and has become a very interesting alternative for small and large producers.
