ABOUT THE FARMER & HIS FARM
FARM HISTORY

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.
In 1974, through Luiz Paulo’s initiative, an
expansion plan took place on Fazenda IP. More
and more coffee seedlings were planted while
at the same time, area of land grew over 500%
of IP’s original area. 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.
Over time, Luiz Paulo developed a bonus-paying
policy to motivate all personnel involved in
post-harvest tasks. When a lot resulted in
cups scoring over 80 points, the bonus was
enacted. At the same time, Luiz Paulo 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”.
