Following a life-long ambition, Robson Vilela bought Alta Vista after a 25 year career as a dentist. He planted two varieties; Yellow Catuai and Yellow Bourbon which are well known for their sweetness and depth. The coffee trees are grown amongst banana trees which offer both protection from the sun and the strong winds.
Apart from the coffee harvests Robson creates income with his bananas and his fish lakes.
Last year Robson also planted 4,200 native trees to combat the effects of deforestation.
