Belonging to South of Minas Gerais, Mantiqueira de Minas is a small hilly area, encrusted in the state’s highest part. This coffee region is largely represented by smallholder producers. Coffees from this region present outstanding citrus, floral and fruity notes, creamy and dense body, intense citric acidity, evident sweetness, and prolonged finish.
This lot was brought to Minas Hill in memory of Nivaldo Arantes, who unfortunately passed away last year. Giane Arantes is the wife of the late Nivaldo, and together with son Willer, they have taken over the fam and make it their mission to continue his work with specialty coffees.
