Irmãs Pereira is an experimental farm in Carmo de Minas that we had the privledge of visiting in 2018. New varietals & processing methods are constantly experimented with here to unlock exciting and varied flavor profiles.
Antônio Andrade Pereira Filho and Maria da Conceição Costa Pereira decided to invest on coffee growing in Carmo de Minas in early 70’s. They bought 90 acres of land and started to plant the first seedlings. While those trees grew, the two daughters of the couple were born: Maria Valéria and Maria Rogéria. The sisters started helping the father to run the farm at very early age. When they got married, their husbands came to join forces on their wives common mission. When the father died, the sisters decided not to split, but to make their union even stronger. Therefore, they changed the name of the farm from Serrado to Irmãs Pereira (Pereira Sisters, in English) to seal the spirit of sisterhood
Maria Rogéria summarises her plans for the future as:
“Our greatest pride is our union as sisters and our main challenge is to keep our pioneering spirit up to date. This is what makes our coffee stand out in the market. This is what makes the difference. If we stay on the edge of innovations we’ll always be a step ahead and and in a strong position”.
