Rio Brilhante is a family driven farm since 1984 and named after the river that runs past the farm. This river adds to a unique combination of soil and climate, which is optimal for growing coffee. The quality of the cup is ensured by rigorous testing and quality control, as well as thorough care of the plants.
The farm is the largest of the region, spread over 2000 hectares, where 1600 is planted with coffee. Aside from educating the workers on the farm in writing and mathematics, Rio Brilhante funds a number of social projects. One of these is Escolinha Tia Edna, a school for handicapped children in the area.
