Since 1988 Vinhal Farm has been producing
very high quality coffees in the heart of Minas
Gerais state, in Cerrado Mineiro Region - Brazil.
Throughout this trajectory they have improved
their work and adopted the best sustainability
practices and respect for people and the
environment. They are a family running a
business and everyone who works in the farm
is absolutely passionate about their coffee.
Their properties are certified by Rainforest Alliance, 4C
and Certifica Minas. With great care and relying on
innovative craft production, they do their best to ensure
that their coffees stand out both in the domestic and
foreign markets, and they are very proud of all the
awards they have already won in some of the main
quality contests in Brazil.
They are sure that their product really stands out for its extremely different aromas and flavors. Sustainability and Quality are their main focuses - their properties (Recanto Farm and Estrela Farm) have three different independent certifications,
two of them international: the Rainforest Alliance, with headquarters in the USA, and the 4C Common Code of the Coffee Community, from Germany; and one of them,
national: Certifica Minas, ran by Minas Gerais state.
To achieve and maintain these certifications, they need to comply with a series of standards regarding issues such as: environmental conservation and sustainable production, good social practices and working conditions, an efficient management
and control system for the entire production chain and, of course, full compliance with all current legislation. Thus, they periodically receive audits on farms to validate the fulfillment of more than 100 evaluation criteria.
