Wholesaler & Reseller
Minas Hill was founded in 2012 as a green bean coffee showroom and reseller based in Australia. We focus on sourcing high-quality specialty coffees that are unique, ethical and sustainable.
In 2020, a long-time dream came true and we started sourcing raw cocoa-derived products from Brazil to Australia. We have partnered with small-scale farmers that use preserved areas for sustainable farming while protecting the forest.
As an independent importer, we work with social and environmental certified suppliers. We understand initiatives such as better remuneration, education and support can change the small producer’s life and their families’ well-being.
We pride ourselves on building strong and long-lasting relationships with our suppliers, and we are pleased to have worked with many of the same producers since the company started.
We believe in fair price, fair trade, and better practices in the coffee and cocoa industries, which includes everyone in the supply chain.
Transparency, commitment, and sustainability are paramount in the way we operate.
Our mission is to provide quality coffee and cocoa with social and environmental responsibility. We connect farmer and roaster to produce a sustainable and fair environment. For us, coffee and cocoa are all about accountability, people, and passion.
As the only member of BSCA in Australia, we proudly gift our partners and coffee connoisseurs with a broad range of single-origin coffees from the best regions of Brazil.
Minas Hill is UTZ/Rainforest Alliance certified since 2017.
All farmers we work with hold at least one of these globally recognised certifications
