Fazenda Bela Epoca

It all started with Mr. Idelbrando, current owner Luiz da Cunha’s grandfather, who originally had a small plantation with 20 thousand coffee plants in the family’s property in Ribeirão Corrente, in the State of São Paulo. At that time, as a small boy, Luiz da Cunha was fascinated by the work that was done on the farm. He would help in the fields, even when he was young. In 1973, at the age of 26 and married to Mrs. Terezinha, Luiz decided to increase the family’s investment in coffee due to his confidence in its profitability. The farm’s current name is a reference to the historical period of BELLE EPOQUE at the end of the 19th century – a time of economic and cultural strength and elegance.

About Brazil

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.
