Campo das Vertentes is located in the heart of Minas Gerais state. The region gained its name, meaning literally “watershed fields,” due to its location between two important water basins in Brazil. Because of the fertile soils and the abundance of water, agriculture arrived early in the region, following the first settlers who came in search of precious metals.

Coffee adapted perfectly to this area and production can be traced back to 1860. More recently, the rich coffee tradition of Campo das Vertentes, as well as the unique landscape and microclimate of the region, are being recognized by a new geographical indication.

The region is characterized by high plateaus with an average altitude of 1,030 meters above sea level. Soft slopes allowing for efficient mechanization. The region has regular rainfall and mild temperatures throughout the year. The harvest season has dry weather, favoring post-harvest procedures, with a broad temperature range during the harvest season, offering good conditions for the maturation cycle.
