Coffee growing in Carmo de Minas has been the business of the Pereira family since 1979. When the family started managing the 215 ha. farmland at Fazenda Santa Ines, it was already planted in coffee, but they opted on planting new varieties and updating the work model in order to improve quality and productivity. At the time the family took over management at Santa Ines, the Carmo de Minas region was experiencing problems with quality. The family hired experts to help improve quality, theyintroduced new harvesting/processing techniques, and they also implementedthe newest farm technology available. Immediately the coffees from Santa Ines began to stand out in regional and nationalcontests, establishing a reputation of quality amongst the specialty coffee market.
In 2005, a sample from Fazenda Santa Ines won first place in Cup of Excellence Brazil, with a world record 95.85 score.
