The well-known coffee growing mecca of Brazil's Minas Gerais brings us this beautiful offering from the Santa Inês Estate. Owned by the Sertão Group and managed by the Pereira family, this farm is backed by generations of knowledge of high-quality coffee production in the region.
This farm sits in the favorable growing terrain of South Minas Gerais, known for its mineral water springs, mountainous terrain, well-defined seasons, and fertile soil. The Sertão Group has focused on broadening their reach into this particular part of Minas, and are working continually to grow their coffee infrastructure. The group also focuses on providing social and health services to its on-site staff of farming families—everything from schools to fishing ponds.
This pulped natural lot of coffee comes from a 259-acre area planted with Yellow Bourbon, Red Bourbon, Yellow Catuaí, Acaiá, and Mundo Novo varieties. It's processed as sustainably as possible: all water in the tanks and pulpers at Santa Inês Estate is recycled, with any residue transferred to runoff ponds to avoid contamination of the surrounding water and soils. The husks of pulped coffee, rich in nutrients, are used as fertilizer and organic matter in the coffee fields.
And though it hails from another hemisphere, we're delighted to share this winter-perfect coffee with Joe drinkers, with its easy-drinking medium-body and notes of prune, jam, and baker's chocolate. We're sure you'll enjoy this example of South Minas' delicious flavors as much as we do.
