More than 300 hectares of the lad are allocated for permanent natural forest reserves, which is six times more than the legal requirement under Brazilian law.
The farm has over 200 varietals, most of which are in experimental production, and is working closely with the Brazilian Coffee Research Institute to experiment with processing and flavour.
The States of Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Paraná are the largest producers due to stable landscapes, climate and rich soil.
