Mantiqueira is located in the south of Minas Gerais, in altitudes between 1,000m and 1,400m above sea level, having mild temperatures between 18 and 20 degrees during most of the year. The region’s microclimate and terroir reflect directly to the coffee quality, adding citric fruity notes to the coffee. Most of the micro-lots on offer at Minas Hill come from there.
At Minas Hill Coffee, we value small producers and family-owned farms. Since the company was created, we could see how we have changed their lives by simply buying their amazing coffee and bringing those hidden gems to Australia. By supporting small traditional farmers, we know we are also supporting sustainability and industry’s good practices, such as promotion of biodiversity and crops without agrochemicals. Our producers focus on quality, traceability, good agricultural practices, social and environmental responsibility, and food safety.
Every year, we bring a selection of outstanding micro-lots from those small producers to Australia. As we always say, coffee is made of stories, and people. You can expect to find high acidity, sweetness, velvety body and citric / fruity notes in coffees from these farmers.
