Fazenda Progresso (The Progress Farm) was founded in 1984 and since then has been managed by the Borré family. Originally from southern Brazil, where agriculture is focused on grains and other cash crops, the initial plan was to grow soybeans in the Chapada Diamantina, a picturesque region at the heart of Bahia State. However, growing grains proved to be inappropriate for that site due to adverse climatic conditions. It was in 2006 that Fazenda Progresso started its history with coffee. Chapada Diamantina has many attributes that are favorable for coffee production, such as high altitude, well-defined seasons, recommended temperature ranges, regular rainfall, and the possibility of irrigated agriculture. Early cultivated varieties were Catuaí 144 and Topazio. The result of the first crop was inspiring, given the qualities achieved both in the semi-washed and dry processing.
