The story of the producer
Pazenda Palmital, in the mountains of the Serra So Pau S’Alho in the district of Cabo Verde, southern Minas Gerais, was purchased in the 1920s by Joaquim Sebastião de Souza, the current owner’s grandfather. Over the years, Fazenda Palmital has built a tradition of producing top quality coffee in a sustainable way. All workers have full legal benefits. The farm also provides employees and their families with free transportation to primary and secondary schools and medical care in Cabo Verde.
In 1950 the farm’s management passed to Augusto de Melo Souza’s Hands. In the 1970s his wife and son started to take care of the property and the family’s offspring is getting ready to take over the farm as he is studying agriculture. Their dedication to the plantation and natural aptitude to it led the average annual production to rise from 2,00 to 6,500 bags of 60kg. The entire farm is handpicked due to the altitude and character of the land, and they have several animals including monkeys, snakes, wild cats, spiders, birds, anteaters, toucans, jaguar, horses and chickens present in the fields.
