Brazil Mantiqueira De Minas


Our Brazil Mantiqueira De Minas is sourced from family owned farms in the Mantiqueira de Minas region within the state Minas Gerais, Brazil.  Because of this regions renowned coffee reputation and optimal growing conditions, this area has a protected designation of origin (PDO).  The area is comprised of 25 municipalities with more than 9,000 producers.  Nearly 90% of the farms are considered small producers and are organized through cooperatives that operate in the region to bring their coffee to the international market.  This collective of small producers is quite distinct in Brazil as coffee lots tend to come from larger estates with highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes.

This crop was grown at altitudes around 1,150 meters above sea level in a clay mineral type soil, then processed in the pulped natural/honey style with sun drying.

Lovely sweet aroma with notes of milk chocolate and marzipan. Nice soft, smooth body in the cup with nuances of milk chocolate, caramel and hints of peach and almond.
