Located in the south of Minas Gerais, the farm Santa Izabel has always been recognised for the high quality of its coffees.
Nobletree Coffee Farms acquired Santa Izabel in 2013 and began transforming it into a sustainable, world-class coffee bean producer. By 2017, the new crops started to harvest. Now in 2020, the older sections are experiencing rejuvenation for stability and sustained growth.
As part of the rebirth, Santa Izabel has a greenhouse/nursery that grows over 40 different tree species that are continually evaluated for producing the highest grade coffees, thriving to the Brazilian climate, resisting disease, and maximizing crop yields. Only the very best trees from the nursery are selected and replanted in the older sections of the farm — insuring a future of award-winning coffees and sustainable farming practices.
