The region of Sul de Minas represents the heart and soul of the Brazilian coffee. Although the Arabicas from this area are famous for their citric notes and medium body, this origin is seemingly underrated and less well known among foreign roasters.
About 70% of the overall harvest is produced in small farms with areas of less than 10 hectares (25 acres) and virtually all the coffee is full natural, i.e. patio-dried in the sun with the occasional use of mechanical driers to complement the drying process.
As a result of the natural drying process, fermentation occurs mainly inside the coffee fruit casing, adding both sweetness and brightness to its taste. Our current offering, Serra da Matinada is a select Sul de Minas coffee that has been meticulously cupped and graded by expert Q-Graders at origin with over 30 years of combined experience to ensure we offer a consistent and quality experience with this coffee.
