Piata, a town located between two mountain ranges, is close to Chapada Diamantina National Park, the highest point in Bahia, with altitudes from 1200m to 1400m above sea level.
The high altitudes and temperatures from 10 degrees celsius to 26 degrees make Piata a unique and privileged coffee-growing region in Brazil.
