The history of Fazenda Sertão merges itself with the first steps of coffee growing in Carmo de Minas. From the first generation of coffee growers in the region, José Isidro Pereira studied dentistry in Belo Horizonte, but forced to return to Carmo de Minas when his mother died and he was the only heir of a piece of land that, of course, is actually Fazenda Sertão. The farm is now owned by Isidoro’s wife Nazareth Dias Pereira and their children.
The farm Fazenda Sertão is located above 1,000m, in Carmo de Minas – state of Minas Gerais. It has an average annual temperature of 18oC. Crops are planted on the top of hillsides with slopes of up to 50%. That’s an important measure to avoid frosts, common in the region on winter, affecting the health of the trees and to provide a more uniform ripening as well as protection against fungi infections because of the lower relative humidity. All these steps, in the end, result in achieving better final quality on the beans.
