Fazenda Monjolo is located in Três Pontas and framed by the Three Peaks mountain, a major landmark from which the city was named after. The region is plentiful in water resources and provides excellent conditions for coffee with altitudes around 1000m and mild weather.
Current owner Aristides Botrel is the heir of a rich coffee growing tradition. In fact the Botrel family was among the first to plant coffee in these lands in the late 1800s.
As an Agronomic Engineer and raised in a farm, Aristides developed a deep understanding of the coffee plant, helping to push the limits in agricultural practices and performance, constantly modernizing the farm to keep up with the latest technologies available. Still nowadays he is responsible for overviewing all field operations and visits all coffee plots on a nearly daily basis.
From 2010, new emphasis has been given to post harvest, including new water milling facilities aiming to improve quality in a continuous and consistent manner. This has enabled Monjolo to broaden the array of coffees available and thus reach different international markets.
