About Fazenda Sertão of Brazil

Coffee production at Fazenda Sertão dates back to the early days of coffee in the Carmo de Minas region, and in 1940, dentist José Isidro Pereira inherited the coffee farm when his mother passed away. Shortly thereafter, he met and married Nazareth Dias. Over the years, they have coaxed excellence from their land. Fast-forward to the present: Nazareth continues running the farm with the help of their 5 children, all coffee producers managing this and other family farms through the family’s firm, The Sertão Group. carrying on their parents’ commitment to developing and improving coffee, sustainability, and community infrastructure.

At Fazenda Sertão, coffee trees grow on slopes up to 50 degrees of steepness. This intense angle allows the plants to avoid frost damage, protects them against fungal infections thanks to lower relative humidity, and results in more uniform ripening of the cherries. These benefits in conjunction with high altitude and a perfect microclimate combine to produce a beautifully sweet coffee.
