Coffee production in Brazil represents about one-third of the entire coffee production, making it by far the biggest producer worldwide for the last 150 years. In central Brazil, the extensive Cerrado savannah is interrupted by seemingly endless plateaus called Chapadas. They cover the states Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul, Mato Grosso, Tocantins, and Minas Gerais, turning them into one of the largest coffee production areas in the world. Around Minas Gerais, farmers have started to concentrate on cultivating mainly specialty coffees. Well-defined seasons with hot, wet summers and pleasantly cool, dry winters favor coffee cultivation in this region.
It is precisely this region where this coffee was produced, specifically in Santo Antônio do Amparo, located in the southern part of the province of Minas Gerais. Along Fazenda Mirante, Pedro Gabarra owns other farms in the area, where many different varieties such as Arara, Caturra, Geisha, Mundo Novo, Bourbon, and Topázio grow. The farm has a total area of 102 hectares of which 71 are dedicated to coffee cultivation. Since its foundation, there has been a significant emphasis on producing high quality coffee while improving the social and environmental impact of the farm. Some of their projects involve improved waste management systems, the provision of environmental education in schools, and opening the farm for the rehabilitation and release of over 900 animals (Wings Project).
Moreover, the farm has also implemented solar panels, and as of 2022, obtained carbon-neutral certification from GRÖN. This certification signifies that the farm absorbs more carbon dioxide than it releases, actively contributing to the battle against climate change.
