Situated on the border of Sul De Minas and the Cerrado sits the mountainous region of Ilicnea with farms rising from 1100 – 1320 m before the land falls away into the expanse of the cerrado. This beautiful area is blessed with a micro climate that provides conditions for producing unique and intriguing coffees. The regions soil is known as cambisolo where the rock is still turning to soil. The region is still relatively new in terms of knowledge about it as coffees were previously sold under the names of other regions until recently. Now these farms are being recognised for the unique coffees they produce in relation to the region & Brazil. This coffee comes from the Furnas Community and a family of three brothers. Bruno has been working with coffee in Ilicinea for only 3 years. He decided to quit his job as a business manager and dedicate himself to coffee production with his family. In 2016, he joined forces with his uncles Dwilliam and Denilson and decided to buy a small piece of land that was 15 ha in total. They have expanded to 29ha now and they call the farm Bela Vista. The family is very pleased with the results and the quality of the coffee they produce. Little by little, they are reorganizing the farm structure, improving the production. The coffee is manually selected by hand before then being sorted and separated and patio dried for 7 – 10 days where it is turned regularly drying to 11%. From here it is then left to rest before being milled and sorted for grades before being delivered to the cooperative.
