The Paraná State North Pioneer was the entry gateway for colonization to all North Parana region, taking as coffeegrowing leverage propeller, already rooted in the ideal colonists, miners and paulistas, who "opened" the way for progress and economic development with coffee plantation cultivation. More than 200 cities appeared in this period, first half of 20th century, such as: Jacarezinho, Cornélio Procópio, Londoner and Maringá. There are traditional families of coffee-growers in this region, some are with more than 100 years of rich history connected with coffee.

Our region is favorable to the coffeegrowing, having ideal climatic conditions for the production of fine coffees, with annual temperatures middle between 19 and 22 ° C, resulted from the combination of altitude (from 500 to 900 m) and latitude (23 and 24 ° S), proportioned longer period between florescence and physiologic maturing of grains, allowing the fixation of more intense attributes and granting excellent characteristics of its drink, where it stand out: intense sweetness, gentleness, balanced body, pleasant citrus acidity and outstanding residual taste, with taste and fragrance oscillating between chocolate, caramel, floral citrus and fruited.
