Brazil's Serras de Minas - Natural coffee represents a remarkable and distinctive coffee-growing region in Brazil. Here's a detailed description:

Region and Geography: The Serras de Minas, or "Mountains of Minas," refers to a coffee-growing area in Minas Gerais, a large state in southeastern Brazil. This region is characterized by its rolling hills and varied topography, providing a unique microclimate ideal for coffee cultivation. The altitude ranges from about 800 to 1,300 meters, contributing to the coffee's distinct flavour profile.

Coffee Characteristics:

  1. Flavor Profile: This natural process coffee typically exhibits a sweet and nuanced flavor. It often features notes of nuts (like almonds or walnuts), chocolate, and sometimes hints of fruitiness, depending on the specific area and processing.
  2. Body and Acidity: These coffees are known for their medium to full body and a moderate to low acidity, making them quite balanced and pleasant to a wide range of palates.
  3. Aroma: The aroma can be described as rich and inviting, often with hints of cocoa and nuts.

Processing Method: The "natural" in its name refers to the processing method. After harvesting, the coffee cherries are dried with the fruit still on the bean. This method, traditional in Brazil, imparts a distinct sweetness and body to the coffee. The drying is often done on large patios, where the cherries are regularly turned to ensure even drying.

Sustainable Practices: Many farms in the Serras de Minas region focus on sustainable farming practices. This includes water conservation, maintaining biodiversity, and often using organic methods, although not all farms are certified organic.

Cultural Significance: Coffee plays a vital role in the culture and economy of Minas Gerais. The region's history and social fabric are deeply intertwined with coffee cultivation, making it a significant aspect of local identity.

This coffee is highly valued for its consistent quality and unique profile, making it a favourite among coffee enthusiasts worldwide. It reflects the rich coffee heritage of Brazil, the world's largest coffee producer.

A note about freshness

To increase shelf life and preserve freshness, it is best to buy the beans whole and grind them at home. That said, we understand that not everyone has a coffee grinder at home. Select the type of grind for the way you normally prepare your coffee. Not sure? Check out our handy chart.
