Serra Negra is an amazing 136 hectare farm in Patrocinio, Minas Gerais, as well as coffee they grow potatoes, garlic, onions, soybeans, maize, sorghum, wheat, beans and they rear cattle. The owner Itagiba Ferreira Cortes Neto is passionate about agriculture in general but especially about coffee, as well as growing a huge amount of coffee they also roast and brew coffee meticulously.
Itagiba’s father was a fertiliser salesman and he took Itagiba with him to visit the farms. These trips inspired him and at 15 he attended an agriculture course and when he turned 18 he went to study agricultural sciences at the Federal University of Goiás. A couple years after this in 1984 he bought seven hectares of land and planted his first coffee plant, these plants are still producing coffee today and his farm has grown a lot!
