Meet The Pereira Family

Santa Inês Estate has been in the Pereira family for generations, and is currently managed through the family’s firm, The Sertão Group, by sons and son-in-laws of José Isidro Pereira and Nazareth Dias Pereira. Of their 530 hectares, 259 are planted with coffee, producing approximately 3,300 bags annually. The Pereiras are committed to environmental sustainability. Not only do they work to develop and improve infrastructures, they recycle water and use coffee pulp and other organic matter to enrich their coffee plantings. Coffee from Santa Inês set the world's record score in the 2005 Cup of Excellence competition, an astounding 95.85 points!

135 families form the core of the workforce at Fazenda Santa Ines. They live on-site in housing provided free by the Pereira family. These accommodations include amenities such as running water and electricity along with coffee, fruits, and milk. Included in the benefits of living and working on the farm are schools for their children, medical and dental care, and such recreational opportunities as soccer fields, swimming, and karate lessons.

Carmo De Minas, Brazil

Part of the micro region of Serra da Mantiqueira, the fertile, volcanic soil, high altitudes, and predominant sunlight of Carmo De Minas lend a distinctive terroir to coffees grown here—so much so that it was the first coffee region in Brazil to earn the European Union’s Geographical Indication seal designating that qualities and attributes are unique to this region.

“Mantiqueira” roughly translates as “Crying Mountains,” referring to the natural springs and streams of the region. The state of Minas Gerais is rich in history and European influence. Indigenous people make up a sector of the population, and though Portuguese is the prominent language, other residents hail not just from Portugal but from many varied parts of the globe, including Africa, Germany, and Lebanon.
