Villa Brasil Green Coffee is a family-owned Arabica Coffee farming and trading business committed to building and supporting "Fair and Direct" trade relationships for the benefit of Brazilian small-scale farmer families and their communities.
In addition to our own coffee farm, we work in partnership with farmer families and farmer cooperatives from Brazil, and maintain over 200 direct and fair trade relationships in coffee producing regions Cerrado Mineiro and South of Minas within Minas Gerais State, the largest coffee-growing state in Brazil and the major source of Brazilian specialty coffee. Our farmer partners combined production of Arabica Specialty and Commercial coffee reaches over 200,000 60kg bags per year.
These farmer families and farmer cooperatives are local businesses democratically governed by the farmers themselves. They work towards sustainable development in their communities, and strive to produce and deliver exceptional specialty coffee.
Our farms are located in the state of Minas Gerais, 300 km from Belo Horizonte in the Cerrado Mineiro, the first region in Brazil to receive Protected Designation of Origin status, and 280 km from Belo Horizonte in the South of Minas region.
In the Cerrado, the planting of the grains occurs at an altitude of 1,000m to 1,100m in the transition range from the Atlantic Forest to the Cerrado. The rainfall index reaches 2,000 mm / year and the average annual temperature of the region varies from 18 ° C to 20 ° C.
