Montesanto Tavares Group is a holding company experienced in all stages of the coffee chain, operating from coffee origin to the sale of blends overseas. In addition to coffee produced on our farms, the company purchases beans from small producers, supporting family farming and valuing coffee growers in the country.

All of this is carried out by our own companies and partners, such as Armazéns Leste de Minas (storage and reprocessing). Today, Montesanto Tavares Group has two exporting companies, Atlantica Coffee and Cafebras, and an importing company, Ally Coffee, in the USA, Europe, and Asia. These trading companies enable the group to negotiate and sell Brazilian coffee worldwide.
