History of the farm:
Sítio Dois Irmãos, located in the Serra da Mantiqueira Indication of Source region, in the south of Minas Gerais, was acquired in 1998 and the following year coffee growing was begun, given that one of the owners, Guy Junqueira Villela, married to Ana Cristina Junqueira Villela, was already part of a familial society among a mother and four children, with properties in Dom Viçoso, where extremely high-quality
coffee is grown, winning several contests. In addition to coffee growing, Mangalarga Marchador horses are also raised on the property.
Concern about quality:
As a philosophy, the properties cherish socio-environmental responsibility and personal dedication in the search for excellent production. As a result, the coffees have already been exported to several countries, as well as winning the following awards:
