Pedro Gabarra believes that all those who deal with coffee are passionate about that is why they go beyond business. Pedro is a Business Administrator and one of the owners of Fazenda Santo Antônio e Pinhal. Behind this passion there is the tradition of five generations of pioneers who planted the first coffee plantations in southern Minas Gerais. In addition to the historic Santo Antônio and Pinhal Farm dating from 1824, Pedro and his father, João Newton, inherited the entrepreneurial spirit of their predecessors. Since 1998, when they took over the business, they seek to invest in the qualification of the team and the quality of the coffee produced.
