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. Geraldo Alvarenga is an agronomist specialized in coffee production. He is implementing his farm with new technologies, from sowing till post-harvest. The harvest is carried out with the ripe fruits, dried slowly at low temperatures.
