Built in 1831 in the first phase of coffee plantation in the Paraíba Valley, the farm has quickly become one of the most prosperous in Vassouras, with an approximate number of 280,000 coffee trees.

The name refers to the Red Mulungu, an abundant tree in the region which can reach up to 15 meters tall and blooms in September. The front façade of the main house has a set of six windows; four of them belong to the lounge and the two remaining to the old chapel.

In 1988, the Mulungu Vermelho Farm was acquired by Simone Marques Pio da Fonseca, who currently opens the property for tourist visitation and also to the activities of the Coffee Valley Festival circuit, held in mid-July.
