Vol De Sol was originally founded by Alexandre Garcia Capelo. His son, Antonio Wander Garcia, an agricultural engineer followed in the footsteps of his father and dedicated his life to produce high quality coffee. The families third generation to work the farm is André Luiz Alvarenga Garcia, son of Antonio, also an agricultural engineer specializing in pruning and producing.

Over the years the family has focused on improving the living conditions of all workers and their families. The environment is also important to them, they use organic matter to revitalize the coffee plantations, reduce the use of agrochemicals and are constantly testing new crops with resistance to rust, drought and nematodes. Sul de Minas is the most important coffee producing area in Brazil and the region accounts on average 30 % of Brazilian coffee exported. The mountainous terrain is ideal for coffee production. The altitude varies from 950 to 1370 meters and the annual temperature stays around 22 to 24C. Pictured here is André Luiz Alvarenga Garcia and wife Natalia.
