The producer Jose Roberto Porto, born in a family of farmers and retired of bank, he purchased the Sitio Boa Vista in order to make the coffee plantations there. The flat area, located at high altitude, allows obtaining a better quality product. The grounds of the property where there are not coffee plantations, are occupied by eucalyptus, pastures and native forest. The preserved forests prevent the water sources found there to suffer the effects caused by erosion and siltation. The employees who take care of the farm resides in another property of the producer.
