The farm was acquired in 1986. It was Alessandro Matos Martins intention to begin planting Arabica coffee, taking advantage of the altitude of its lands – above 1,200 meters and its mild climate 15º C average. Respecting the environment, coffee is grown sustainably, always looking for the best possible use of products that can leave chemical residues, and investing in forestation with native species.
