The 560-hectare Fazenda do Sertão was purchased by brothers Cicero and Daltro Noronha Barros in 1984; it was already partially used as coffee farm, but the brothers made repairs to the land and increased production and productivity of that area of the business by planting new varieties and building terreiro drying beds. The coffee production is on 81 hectares of the land, but the farm didn't produce specialty coffees until 2010, when Guilherme de Siqueira, one of the brothers' sons. undertook some construction projects to improve quality, including new drying structures. Now the farm is capable of producing 90+ point coffees.
