Chocolate, dried fruits, nuts


Coffee was first cultivated
in Cerrado Mineiro in the
1970s by farmers from
Paraná and São Paulo.
Through a technique
that corrects soil acidity
(liming) and irrigation,
large-scale cultivation
has become possible.
The region has around 4500 farmers cultivating a
combined area of 210,000ha. The Cerrado Mineiro
presents a dry climate during the harvest period, which
causes the coffee to suffer less from humidity after
harvesting, allowing for a consistent drying process.
The region, which covers 55 municipalities in total,
achieved the Denomination of Origin in 2013 and was
the first region in the country to receive this recognition.
