North Pioneer of Parana

North Pioneer Region is considered the gateway for the colonization of the northern part of the state of Paraná. Established in 1890, new ways of economic development and progress came to this important Brazilian agricultural region. Many cities of Paraná were born through the coffee culture such as Jacarezinho, Cornelio Procopio, Londrina and Maringa.

After the Treaty of Taubute prohibiting development of new areas for coffee production in the state of São Paulo, the Paranáense soil became coveted for the cultivation of coffee. Paraná’s soils are of volcanic origins which yield the highest natural fertility; combine the rich soil with a mild climate and evenly distributed rains throughout the year and the result is coffee cultivation heaven. Between 1950’s and 70’s the state of Paraná was able to produce approximately 22 million sacks of coffee, establishing itself as the main world producer of Rubiacea.

Nowadays, the North Pioneiro of Paraná produces 50% of the state’s coffee while maintaining its growing potential of producing specialty coffee that is both certified and sustainable.

South of Minas

Coffee has been grown in Sul de Minas, in the southern part of Minas Gerais, for generations. Beautiful coffee plantations blanket the region, and visiting the area is like stepping back into coffee history. This is the most diverse and important coffee-producing region within Brazil, and washed coffees from here are known for their intricate and intense aroma, light acidity and sweet flavors.

Sul de Minas is a steep mountainous area. Rugged slopes and valleys create a breathtaking backdrop for local coffee plantations and myriad microclimates. With altitudes ranging from 750 to 1,350 meters ASL, many areas are ideal for the production of high-quality Arabicas. The rugged terrain in Sul de Minas makes it necessary to farm coffee by hand in most of the region. Though individual farms in the area are small, together they combine to cover 600,000 hectares and make this one of Brazil's most important specialty coffee regions.
