Fazenda Bom Jardim
Way before Cerrado Mineiro became known for the quality of its coffee, the Queiroz family was already cultivating coffee in the region. In fact, Roberto’s father was among the first three coffee producers of the Cerrado and for the last 50 years the family has been developing techniques which make for an outstanding range of specialty coffees. Located close to the city of Patrocínio 950 meters above sea level, Bom Jardim Estate comprises a total of 360 hectares, where there is a large lake and an assortment of wild animals such as monkeys and siriemas.

The farm is very well organised with a production line that co-exists harmonically with the environment through the employment of technologies that minimize impact and allows for the conservation of biodiversity. The estate believes in good social practices for its work force, something the family have always put in place.
