Inacio founded Rio Brilhante in the 1980s when he moved to Cerrado Mineiro and he saw great potential for growing cof- fee in the rich soils of the Pantano micro-region. More than 30 years later and Rio Brilhante is a thriving family business with over 1200 hectares of highly productive land. All coffees from Rio Brilhante are Rainforest Alliance certified due to the Urban family’s exemplary farming practices. The terroir of Rio Brilhante is known for producing coffees with big red fruit, caramel, and chocolate notes. Enjoy!
