Brazil Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama

Farm Kaffee

Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama has been in the Carvalho Dias family since 1890. Gabriel de Carvalho Dias was responsible for the property management, until 2016, when Bourbon took the administration of the farm. It is located 3 miles from Minas Gerais state line and has characteristics from the mountainous areas of Mogiana and from Sul de Minas. On this farm everything is done manually, which includes coffee plantation handling and harvest, since its topography does not allow any kind of mechanization. Social and environmental sustainability is considered very important in the farm management. They have developed
a program of planting native species to keep a better ecological balance. The farm has a school, a club and an official size soccer field for the employees benefit. There are 47 houses for the employees and their families, all with modern facilities. Since 2017 they have invested, among others, in new varieties, new patios and beds, a food engineer who is in charge of protocols and responsible for tests from field to cup. Regarding these investments they intend to have scientific database and knowledge about all the chemical and physical process that happens with coffee, in order to have everything proven and able to replicate and share with our partner producers.
