Fazenda (the Portugese word for “farm”) Sertao is a coffee with a love story. Among the first generation of coffee growers in this area was Jose Isidro Pereira, a dentist-turned–coffee producer who inherited Fazenda Sertao from his mother when she passed away—an incident that ended his dentistry career but put him on a path to coffee farming. In 1949, Jose Isidro met the “love of his life,” Nazareth. They managed the farm together until Jose passed, and now Nazareth continues to run the farm her husband left in her care. Nazareth and Jose Isidro’s children—Francisco, Luiz Paulo, Clycia, and Sandra—are also coffee producers, carrying on the family tradition. This lot of Yellow Bourbon has a lot of that love in it, and you can tell in the cup.
