The Paraíso estate is located in Cerrado Mineiro, in the north-west of Minas Gerais, at 1,130 meters altitude. This region is known for its high quality coffee. Typical for this region are the pronounced seasons; hot, humid summers, followed by mild dry winters. The climate is tropical with 1400mm water falls. This water is partly collected in large reservoirs for irrigating the plantation. Different plantations are tested with different types of rock, as alternative sources of phosphorus and potassium.
