Fazenda IP was first purchased in 1967, by Isidro Pereira, father of Luiz Paolo.
By 1974, Luiz began expanding Fazenda IP: It now covers an area of 720 hectares. This estate cultivates Yellow Catuai, Yellow Catucai, Acaia, and Yellow Bourbon. The coffee is processed using both the natural and pulped- natural method. Nestled outside the city of Carmo de Minas, the farm sits at a range of 950–1200 meters. The high altitude favors a slow ripening of cherry and permits selective picking, which are decisive factors to produce coffees of exceptional quality.
