Initially a tea producing town, Curitiba first became a coffee producer in the 1930s. In 1960s, the city accounted for 60 percent of Brazil’s yield and a third of the world’s coffee production. Curitiba’s coffee grew so famous that Parisian and Buenos Aires’ cafes would often have posters that boasted that they only served coffee from Parana.
This made Parana very prosperous but soon Brazil levied export taxes on coffee and introduced multiple foreign exchange rates which included a tax on the bean’s exports. With the money collected as tax, the government initiated industrialization, which was taking place in different parts of Parana. Soon, coffee took a backseat in whole scheme of things.
In time, soybeans, wheat, corn, beans, rice and sugar took the place of coffee indusrty. These became the chief money pullers for the residents as well the farmers of Parana. The boom in the agro products also brought in more people to Parana. In 1940, the population of Paranï¿ was only 1.2 million, over 2.7 million people immigrated here over the next 25 years. This mass settlement was linked can be attributed to rise in the agricultural status of Parana.
