IP’s story is all about family and generations. In 1967 Isidro Pereira, father of Luiz Paulo, purchased the farm. During this period, Luiz Paulo was studying agricultural techniques and livestock production and five years later, joined his father in running the farm. Decades later, Luiz Paulo bought his first de-pulping machine and started studying up on the latest methods of coffee processing and production of specialty coffees. He also offered the staff guidance and training on the importance of quality processes in coffee growing. According to Luiz Paulo the, “Search for innovation in [the] specialty coffee business must be constant and mandatory. Nowadays, no one can run a coffee farm in a sustainable way with coffees rating below 80 points in a cupping session”.
