Brazil Mantiqueira De Minas


Our Brazil Mantiqueira De Minas Natural Yellow Catuai 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.

Soft, smooth and so easy to drink! Nice aroma with nuances of chocolate, caramel and a subtle hint of cherry. Smooth, light body in the cup with notes of milk chocolate, caramel or butterscotch, with just a slight touch of plum and cherry coming through.
