Fazenda Cachoeira de Grama is owned by the Carvalho family. The farm is located in Vale de Grama, which is home to some of Brazil's most "elite" coffee farms and an incredibly beautiful region, with rolling hills surrounding the coffee land.

Fazenda Cachoeira de Grama is a 411-hectare plot with about 100 hectares planted in coffee; they also grow eucalyptus nearby. There are 27 full-time and about 40 seasonal employees tending to the Catuai and Yellow Bourbon trees planted here, the oldest of which dates back to 1956! The farm has an on-site school for all employees' families to use, and there are about 300 children who take advantage of the services. The school is jointly funded by the Brazilian government and the farmers in the area.

This coffee is a classic chocolatey-sweet cup with notes of almond complimented by a soft acidity.
