About the Estate
Fazenda Santa Izabel was founded in 1970 when the patriarch of Dal Ava family - Mr. Pedro Dal Ava - bought these lands without any coffee trees until then and started the production of some of the finest green coffees around the Volcanic Microregion of Poços de Caldas. Today the farm is conducted by his son Luiz Paulo Dal Ava together with the grandson Francislei Dal Ava. In 2013 the Poços de Caldas Coffee Quality Contest crowned Fazenda Santa Izabel with the 2nd and 3rd places.
"When my father arrived here there was no culture in these lands. And now we have been recognized by contests and international buyers. We feel very moved and I am sure my father would be very proud of it", said Luiz Paulo.
