The Sertão Estate is hailed as the first farm to produce coffee in Carmo de Minas, an area famed for its Yellow Bourbon varietal.
Why we love this coffee
Under José Isidoro Pereira and Nazareth Dias Pereira, three generations of farmers have successfully grown these beans on the steep, sprawling hillsides of the region. They have passed on this treasured family tradition to their children and grandchildren, who are now involved with managing the farm, roasting and exporting coffee, as well as running a coffee shop.
This rich history has culminated in a wonderfully distinctive flavour. Every cup unfolds with a bright, delicate sweetness that reflects the deep connection between this family legacy and such a celebrated varietal.
