Fazenda IP was established in 1967 by Isidro Pereira. After completing his agriculture and farming studies, his son, Luiz Paulo Dias Pereira Sr., also joined the team. Together, they became pioneers in growing coffee in Carmo de Minas and founded what has since turned into a dynasty.
More recently, a third generation of the family, Luiz Paulo Dias Pereira Filho (Isidro's grandson), has joined the team. With an eye to the future, Luiz Paulo Jr. has established an experimental farm to grow more exotic varieties not typically found in Brazil, including Geisha and Heirloom Ethiopian varieties.
Alta Gracia is one of the highest parts of Fazenda IP, sitting around 1300 masl. This naturally processed Yellow Bourbon is super creamy, with lots of loud tropical fruit notes.
The family's passion and commitment to quality continues unabated. Luiz Paulo Sr. and Jr. cup every single lot before it leaves the farm.
