Our coffee has history, our flavor has memory.
When Inacio Urban arrived in Minas Gerais in 1976, he brought with him a dream of feeding the world and a great passion for coffee. In 1984, he acquired a farm in the Cerrado Mineiro region and called it Rio Brilhante. There he would plant his first coffee trees in a sustainable and innovative manner before becoming one of the largest producers in the country. Year after year the coffees produced by Inacio Urban broke barriers and won the trust of the most demanding markets, a result of rigorous quality control guaranteeing truly differentiated beans. In 2016, Grupo Farroupilha launched its coffee brand, with a name paying homage to its history: Rio Brilhante Cafe_ de Origem. And in 2017, it won 1st place in the Cerrad Coffee Japan quality contest.
