This paper has sought to evaluate the economical efficiency in the use of productive resources in the coffee production in the south region of the state of Minas Gerais. Economical efficiency was estimated through a production frontier function using a sample of 43 coffee producers. The average economical efficiency index reached by the coffee producers in the south of Minas Gerais was 80,14%. Such index indicates that a tendency to gains in productions can be obtained through a better allocation of the production factors, which may lead them to operate on the production frontier line.
