FARM STORY

Fazenda Palmital is located in Cabo Verde, in the mountains of the Serra do Pau D'Alho. It was acquired in the 1920's by Carlos Augusto's grandfather. Carlos owns the farm after he inherited from his father and has been carrying on the family legacy with his wife, Katinha, and his son, Augusto, sharing the activities.

The Rodrigues de Melo family works together and counts on a loyal and focused team, formed mostly by professionals who have a generational relationship with the farm. This length of service stems from Carlos' philosophy to do everything with a lot of love and to do it well. During the harvest season, the busiest of the year, they work with 120 people. During the off-season there are 50.

Everyone works on the farm focusing on quality and consistency, so that year after year, they are successful in their results.

Besides Palmital, Carlos Augusto has three other coffee areas - two in the same region of Palmital and one in Carmo do Rio Claro. Everything that they harvest is prepared at Fazenda Palmital - the headquarters and also the family's home. One of these drives innovation for the estates with irrigation experimentation and understanding.

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.
