Brazil Minas Gerais Natural a special treat brought to us from the Serra das Três Barras estate in the Mantiqueira de Minas region. A full-bodied coffee boasting sweet notes of strawberries, brown sugar and rich chocolate sauce.

ORIGIN: Brazil

For over 150 years, Brazil has been the world’s top coffee producer, which currently accounts for approximately a third of all coffee produced. Most plantations are located in the southeastern states, where the environment and climate are ideal for growing coffee. While most countries process beans using the wet process, almost all coffee in Brazil uses a dry process.

REGION: Mantiqueira de Minas, Minas Gerais  

Minas Gerais is the largest of the three major growing regions in Brazil. Located within the region is the Mantiqueira de Minas region, which is where this single estate coffee is traceable to. It is a protected area known for its rolling hills, good rainfall, ideal temperatures and well-defined seasons for growing coffee. Most local plantations harvest one large annual crop during the dry season, usually between June and September. Mantiqueira is known for its focus on sustainable growth whilst preserving the traditional quality and authenticity of the region

FARM: Serra das Tres Barras

A 500-acre estate, known for their extremely high-quality coffees, that has been in the same family for five generations. There are 160 hectares cultivated for coffee. Coffee is picked by hand and placed in cloths, in order to avoid contact with the ground. The same day, they are transported to drying, always seeking to keep quality at the forefront of all processing.

PRODUCER: Cooperative

Our Minas Gerais Natural is sourced from small, family-owned farms in the Mantiqueira de Minas region.  This collective of small producers is distinct in Brazil, where lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes.  By working within the cooperative, small producers are able to bring their coffee to the international market.

Peaberry Brazil Minas Gerais Natural

I love this coffee. It’s not the first time I’m roasting this one, and won’t be the last time! It’s a beautiful marriage between earth and sun taste, with a little bold end. I found this one quality and precious drink.
