The Junqueira family started growing coffee on the highlands of southern Minas Gerais in Brazil, 150 years ago. The region boasts mountainous terrain, mineral water springs and ideal conditions for coffee production. The current owner is Tulio Junquiera, a fifth-generation farmer and former president of Brazil Specialty Coffee Association. Combining tradition with innovation, Carmo Estate is a sustainable and ethical farm producing exquisite Brazilian specialty coffee.

The family pays extra attention to its specialty coffee production, working closely with an agronomist to ensure their land is producing as well as possible. The region’s fertile soil and the family’s attention to detail contribute to an average yield of 40 bags per hectare—more than twice the national average for Brazilian coffee.

Carmo Estate offers healthcare to employees, schooling for children and adult education projects. They also run an innovative profit-sharing programme, inviting employees to become partners and receive profits from sales of their coffee. The Junqueira family’s mission is to produce exceptional coffee and provide their employees with a great quality of life – we think they’re doing a phenomenal job!
