ABOUT THE REGION
The Cerrado Mineiro is a high-quality coffee region – the only one in Brazil certified “Protected Geographical Indication.” The region consists of 55 districts located in the northwest of Minas Gerais State with over 4,500 growers.
The coffee world is growing and changing, directly influenced by more conscientious and demanding consumers. A new coffee world is emerging – with new markets and consumers that demand a new attitude, new ways of thinking and acting, and new ways of producing and trading to achieve value and recognition.
We believe that the Cerrado Mineiro Region has great potential; therefore we are in a mission to prepare ourselves for this big challenge: "Turning the Cerrado Mineiro Region into a reference of attitude for the new coffee world regarding producers, the region, and its products".
Our product is singular, because it’s produced in a singular area. Having well-defined seasons - a hot, wet summer and a pleasantly dry winter - is a strong characteristic of the region. The coffee plantations are cultivated in areas with altitudes varying between 800 and 1,300 meters, the result being high quality coffees with a unique/singular identity.
"Exotic" characteristics, due to micro-regions, varietals and differentiated processing.
These coffees are prepared as microlots and highlight our particular Cerrado Mineiro terroir, with its distinctive microclimate and soil characteristics. Standouts at cupping tables! Unique coffees best when prepared by filter methods but extremely versatile as single origin and espresso blend components.
