About Brazil Mantequiera Coqueiro Natural

Coqueiro Farm is located in the Serra da Mantiqueira region, in Carmo de Minas, a city internationally recognized for its coffee tradition.

With over 40 years of cultivation, the family is committed to sustainable production focusing on quality.

The property benefits from the geographical and climatic conditions, which combined with the post harvest care result in grains with excellent attributes.

Paulo Sérgio Carneiro Ribeiro is an associate with APROCAM which holds the seal of indication of origin (IP) - Mantiqueira de Minas that aims to ensure the origin and quality of the batch.

The crops are situated at altitudes ranging from 1,000 to 1300 meters.

Harvesting is performed manually on the cloth, avoiding that the grains have contact with the ground. The harvested coffee is taken to the processing center (located on the farm).

After being washed and peeled (natural or pulped natural) the drying is done in the yard and then finished in the dryer ensuring a homogeneous result. The beans are stocked at COCARIVE (Rio Verde Valley Coffee Growers Regional Cooperative), in Carmo de Minas, which supports the cooperative at all stages of production including in the marketing area where there is a department entirely dedicated to these high-end lots scores.

About Brazil

Coffee was bought to Brazil in 1727 from French Guiana, by Captain- Lieutenant Francisco de Melo Palheta. Legend has it, that Francisco de Mello charmed the French governor’s wife and she buried coffee seeds in a bouquet of flowers and that is how the cultivation of coffee began.

Today, Brazil is the world’s largest coffee producer and is becoming a major player in the specialty coffee industry.

Coffee farms in Brazil are run as small estates, called ‘Fazendas de Cafe’. The vast majority of coffee farms are found in the regions of Paraná, Espirito Santos, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, and Bahia. Each of these growing regions, produce their own distinct coffees.

Brazil produces many varieties of coffee known as, Bourbon, Typica, Caturra, and Mundo Novo, and about 80% of coffee produced is Arabica. Coffee in Brazil is processed by the wet (washed), dry (natural), and semi-washed (pulped natural) methods.

Coffee in Brazil has generated wealth and stimulated the growth of all agricultural and industrial sectors. It has brought to Brazil many economic, social and political changes in all states, and continues today to be one of the most important products in Brazil.
