The name cerrado translates as closed, and the region remained so until the 1960s, when farmers began treating the soil. Over the years, the grasslands were transformed into agricultural and pasture land. Brazil Cerrado coffee is grown at altitudes of 900–1,250 meters above sea level. Plantations are large, ranging from 100 to 3,000 hectares, with tremendous output. An homogenous climate allows for extensive control at all levels of the production. Additionally, the flat topography enables the use of efficient mechanical harvesting.
