Fazenda Ouro Verde was transformed into an alternate income source for its owners’ families in the late 1980s when it was run by the current owners’ father-in-law, from whom Candido first learned about coffee growing. The farm is in Piata, in the Chapada Diamantina region, at about 1300 maters of elevation and with temperatures varying between 2 and 17C. Producer Candido Rosa is attentive to new quality coffee production techniques. He has won COE in 2009, 2014, and 2015.
