About the Estate

The farmer Natal Alves Figueiredo started his coffee production activity in 1996, when he found a marvelous mountainous piece of land in the Micro Region of Poços de Caldas, which he called Sítio Porta do Céu - "Heaven's gate estate". At the time there was no coffee tree in these lands and Natal had to develop the coffee plantation by himself, a childhood dream since his grandfather was already a famous coffee grower in the region.

 

After almost 20 years of hard work embedded of an authentic passion for the coffee farming activity, Natal is responsible today for the production of some of the most exquisite microlots of the region.
