“In terms of history, we inherited this farm from my husband family. We are the fourth generation of coffee producers. We have an approach very centered on a good control of operations at plant level (nutrition, sanitary, etc.) and on post-harvest processes in order to improve quality. We are very concerned about the sustainability of the processes as well”
– Aristides Botrel
Fazenda Monjolo is located in Três Pontas and framed by the Three Peaks mountain, a major landmark from which the city was named
after. The region is plentiful in water resources and provides excellent conditions for coffee with altitudes around 1000m and mild weather.
Current owner Aristides Botrel is the heir of a rich coffee growing tradition. In fact the Botrel family was among the first to plant coffee in these lands in the late 1800s.
