Wholesaler & Reseller
We are a green coffee beans showroom and reseller located in Australia.
Our sole focus is to source high-quality specialty coffees that are unique, ethical and sustainable for the producers. We proud ourselves for building strong and long-lasting relationships with the farmers we work with, and we are pleased to have worked with many of the same producers since the company was founded, in 2012.
Minas Hill Coffee is an independent green coffee beans importer, only working with social and environmental certified suppliers. We understand small initiatives such as better remuneration along with education and support can change small producer’s life and their families’ well-being.
Minas Hill Coffee believes in fair price, fair trade and better practices in the coffee industry, that includes everyone along the coffee chain. Transparency, commitment and sustainability are paramount in the way we do business.
Our mission is to provide only social and environmental responsible quality coffee. Connecting the farmer to the roaster, in order to produce a fair environment for the future.
For us, coffee is all about friendship, 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.
In 2017, we became UTZ certified.
Minas Hill Coffee ensures that each shipment meets our quality standards. The process begins in Brazil – every farmer we work with has a thorough process in place, reducing chances of a faulty shipment.
It is part of our protocol to receive pre-shipment samples, and once we agree with the quality, the order is confirmed.
When the coffee arrives in Australia, we extensively test and re-test it at our warehouse, covering every aspect of the new coffee or crop, making sure the roasters are always receiving an exceptional good.
All farmers we work with hold at least one of these globally recognised certifications
