Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama has been in the Carvalho Dias family since 1890. Gabriel de Carvalho Dias, the owner, is responsible for the property’s management. It is located 3 miles from Minas Gerais state line and has characteristics from the mountainous areas of Mogiana and from Sul de Minas. On this farm everything is done manually, which includes coffee plantation handling and harvest, since its topography does not allow any kind of mechanization.
Social and environmental sustainability is considered very important in the farm management. Gabriel de Carvalho Dias developed a program of planting native species to keep a better ecological balance. The farm has a school, a club and an official size soccer field for the employees’ benefit. There are 48 houses for the employees and their families, all with modern facilities. The wastewater is treated to avoid polluting the stream that runs across the farm.
This dry processed, natural, has a soft, sweet acidity like ripe fruit and berries. It’s full bodied, dark chocolate, walnut with a smooth clean aftertaste.
