  • Coffees from the highlands of the Chapada Diamantina in the centre of Bahia are among Brazil’s best and regularly feature in the Cup of Excellence.
  • The dry sertão in the west of Bahia has become one of Brazil’s most productive coffee-growing regions, thanks to large-scale irrigation systems.
  • The regions closer to the Atlantic coast in both Bahia and Espírito Santo produce conilon (Coffea canephora).
  • Espírito Santo produces 80% of Brazil’s canephora and holds an Indicação de Procedência (IP) for conilon grown in the state.
