100 year old Fazenda Rio Verde was acquired by Ipanema in 2005. Surrounded by forests, blessed with waterfalls, this farm is a nature sanctuary where coffee fields represent 40% of the land use. The diversity of vegetation has given these soils an unequalled richness in terms of nutrients and organic material.
Ranging from 800 – 1350 MASL, almost all operations are performed by hand and with different amounts of sunlight that each area receives, cup characteristics are completely different from each other. Cultivars on the estate include Acaia, Red Rubi, Mundo Novo and the exceptional Yellow Bourbon, Yellow Catuai and Yellow Icatu.
