The award winning Fazenda Capim Branco has been in the Andrade family since 1901. Located in the high green Cerrado Mineiro in the north of Minas Gerais state the region has ideal coffee growing conditions thanks to the perfect balance of wet and dry seasons. The rich volcanic soils at Capim Branco are mainly planted with Yellow Catuai, a varietal that thrives in this environment.

The combination of natural conditions, meticulous crop management, forward thinking crop planning and post harvest selection means that the Andrade’s farms produce truly excellent quality, award winning coffees that are appreciated both within Brazil and internationally as some of the best the country has to offer. This is reflected in the fact that the farm won the prestigious Cup of Excellence for their 2018 harvest.
