Volcanic Micro Region of Poços de Caldas - Brazil

The Volcanic Microregion of Poços de Caldas is an authentic Brazilian coffee terroir, where farms are scattered along slopes of one of the most geologically rich volcanic calderas in the world. 

 

With average heights from 1,000m to 1,300mrich combination of volcanic minerals and rainforest soil and a rare climate condition, ​​​​this unique microregion has ideal conditions for growing excellent and exquisite profiles of specialty coffees.

 

The subtropical altitude climate offers to this terroir an excellent rainfall rate and the largest thermal amplitude for a whole day among all the Brazilian coffee growing regions, creating outstanding conditions for the maturation of the beans and triggering a burst of flavors for the coffees.

 

These are natural vocations which join a culture based on quality and sustainability principals.
