http://kaphe.com.br

The farm of almost 200 years was the birthplace, in Guaxupé – Minas Gerais – Brazil, of Count Ribeiro do Valle. His traditional family, now in the sixth generation, keeps the natural beauty of the place, which has an ecological reserve, part of the Atlantic Forest, with countless species of birds and wild animals. These facts led to the implementation of rural tourism and brought notoriety to the site.

The cultivation of coffee has highlighted the region in the commercial sphere, since Minas Gerais is the largest coffee producer state in Brazil. For Its prodigious coffee production, Minas Gerais is known worldwide as, by far, the heavyweight champion of the coffee-producing world. Its high altitude and average annual temperatures facilitate the production of full-bodied coffee with acid flavors, lightly citrus and fruity aromas.
