Brazil - Mantiqueira Mountains
This beautiful regional coffee is produced by several small-holder farmers who are members of the Cocarive Co-operative in Carmo de Minas.
The coffees going into this regional lot have been carefully selected for their variety and quality which is then processed by Cocarive.
There are a growing number of farms in Brazil that are focusing more and more on overall cup quality rather than just volume. By approaching the growing, harvesting, and processing with higher attention to detail the overall quality of the coffees these smallholder farmers can produce has been outstanding.
The altitude and mineral-rich volcanic soil create prime conditions for growing sweet, well-balanced, and wonderfully flavourful coffees.
"Headquartered in Carmo de Minas, serving several municipalities in the region, COCARIVE stands for the production of specialty coffees promoting the development of the region.
Situated in the mining face of the Serra da Mantiqueira, with very fertile land and an excellent conducive to the production of specialty coffees climate, has been gaining ground each year as the result of quality contests held in Brazil.
