Brazil - Fazenda Bananal

Toasted Nuts. Dark Chocolate. Molasses.

The legacy of the Bananal Coffee Estate began in 1904 when a young Lebanese immigrant, Pedro Izar, first set his roots on the fertile area of Bocaina. Since his early arrival in Brazil, Pedro travelled by foot from the capital to the countryside – were he sold goods to farmers along the way. When Pedro first saw the Bananal Estate, which is located in the heart of São Paulo, he had an instant connection and promised himself he would buy it one day. After 10 years of hard work and after three days as a newlywed, he acquired the estate from the Freitas family. When Pedro and his wife passed away in later years, one of his daughters, Olga Izar, took over the farm and married into the Atalla Family. By 1973, Olga’s sons – four Atalla brothers continued to expand the farming operations. Today, Bananal Coffee Estate is managed by the fourth generation. The family uses its tradition and origin in coffee cherry production along with modern farming practices to obtain the highest quality beans.
