Fazenda Monte Alto is absolutely steeped in coffee tradition. The Ribeiro do Valle family has long dedicated their lives to the production of fine coffee, and after 136 years it’s no surprise that they’ve perfected the art. Now in their ninth generation of producing coffee, the family’s patriarch is very well-known in the region by the name “Barão de Guaxupé” (Baron of Guazupé) – which also happens to be the brand name of their commercial coffee.
Coffee was introduced to the country back in the early 18th century, which rapidly spread throughout Brazil, making it the leading producer of coffee worldwide.
Additionally, Brazil is the only country to utilize mechanized harvesting tools to assist with the extensive coffee fields. The flat topography of the country allows for the ease of machines to slowly comb through the coffee trees and remove ripe cherries. Advanced agricultural technology has allowed for the even harvesting of cherries and prevents uneven harvesting.
Today, the well-known coffee producing regions are Espirito Santo, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, and Bahia.
