The Carmo de Minas micro region, with fertile lands and rugged terrain, has gorgeous coffee plantations cultivated at high altitudes that vary between 900 and 1,500 meters. Although sunny weather prevails, temperatures are mild and rainfall is distributed uniformly over the year. This exceptional terroir is the result of the perfect natural features in combination with careful coffee husbandry practices carried out with efficiency and devotion by the Fazenda Sertao team. Coffee from this region is known for its full body and medium-to-high acidity. The region’s economy is based on agriculture and coffee is responsible for providing more than half the income and jobs.
