Region Description:


The Matas de Minas coffee region is in the southeastern part of the Minas Gerais state, with a distinct topography featuring rugged mountain terrains, a mild Brazilian Atlantic Forest climate and the Cerrado Mineiro region, located in northwest of Minas Gerais State is a world-recognized, high-quality coffee producing origin and became the first Protected Geographical Indication in Brazil in 2005, with full Designation of Origin in 2013. A strong characteristic of this region is its well-defined seasons—a hot, wet summer followed by a pleasantly dry winter. The dry climate during harvest eliminates potential problems with humidity during the drying process. 
Minas Gerais is Brazil’s principal agricultural state, and the Cerrado is home to many of the country’s celebrated coffee estates, with expertise in planting, harvesting, drying, and sorting. We love Cerrado coffees for their big body, rich chocolate notes, and velvety texture when pulled as espresso.




Today, the area’s 4,500 farmers produce a combined average of 6 million bags per harvest, with an average of 35 bags per hectare. To reach these production levels, producers had to first adapt to the region’s conditions. Coffee farmers first arrived in Cerrado in the 1970’s, after being pushed out of the state of Parana by frost and out of the state of Sao Paolo by nematodes. They found the soil in Cerrado to be very acidic, which they rectified with the application of calcium to create the healthy soils they enjoy today. Cerrado coffee farms are cultivated in areas with elevations varying between 800 and 1,300 meters above sea level and are known for consistently producing high quality coffees with a repeatable profile. Independent of farm size, the spirit of professionalism is present throughout Cerrado’s coffee producers. Entrepreneurialism is part of farmers’ DNA, and many producers are second or third generation growers who also hold degrees in agronomic engineering, business management, and administration. While each family narrative is different, Cerrado is characterized by an enterprising attitude.

Three Roast's

I've roasted on my hottop drum roaster, Light, Medium Light and Medium. All three roast's gave me different flavors and aftertaste's. All three were great. Notice, I like my roast's on the lighter side. More intense flavor, I think!

Decent Coffee, Tough Roast

Fairly new to roasting (about 2 years now). I roasted 5 separate small batches. Each one of them I couldn’t hear first crack. I gradually increased the starting temperature on each roast and the very long roast time started to come back down to something more normal. All of the roasts turned out tasty, but very hard to dial in, and I think the potential is there for a much better roast. I would have rated it a 2 for taste alone, but because I couldn’t hear first crack I am sure that I just had underdeveloped roasts. I still have some left that I will dry hotter, and really crank up during yellowing. I think that will get the development that I was expecting. I will order again as I think I am ready for the challenge of this bean.

Great Brazilian

Many people turn their nose up at Brazilians. Not this one. A cocoa bomb with depth and sweetness. Great for morning wake-up!

Interesting blend:))

Unlike most Brazils, this blend Mike put together has it all. I’ve pulled shots with it, made pour overs and Americanos, all good to great. The classic Brazilian flavors (fruit, cocoa,nuts) all appear as the brew cools. Recommended ☑️
