Mirantes do Bananal, Ilha Grande

Bonito Brazilian Beans
Half way up a mountain on Ilha Grande our trail led us through a coffee plantation from the last century. The remaining bushes were being harvested by an islander who was happy to show us the fruits of his hard labour, gathered in the heat and humidity of the rainforest.

Our adventure spa is a detox week and therefore coffee free! But it was so interesting to see the beans or 'grão de café' in their natural form and it was a first for many of the group.
