About this coffee

Coffee story

We love natural Brazil coffees. They’re sweet, body-driven, and produce luscious espresso. The best examples exude a flavor like just-roasted hazelnuts. Minas is for Minas Gerais [mee-nas zher-ice], the biggest and we think best producing state located in the south-center of Brazil.

Naturais is Brazilian Portuguese for natural, the bean preparation method we most prefer in this part of the world. It takes sun, and plenty of it, to dry all the way through the skin and sweet pulp of the coffee fruit to the seeds inside. This is done on well-tended patios, where whole cherries are raked continuously, and also on the trees, where a portion of the pickings are left to dry on the branch.

For the record, all of our favorite farms also produce coffees by the “pulped natural” method, which involves removing the skin and some of the fruit pulp from the outset, and the “washed” method, which fully removes it, as is the standard in countries like Costa Rica. In Brazil, with lower altitudes and less acidity, we find the typical washed coffee to be somewhat bland.

Brazil Minas Naturais is anything but, making maximal effect of slow sun drying for a thoroughly sweet cup with mild fruit and caramel notes, unctuous hazelnut and smooth, full body.

Introduced to this coffee by a friend in Seattle. I live in NC and found it in my local store. I love the smooth, sweet taste of this medium roast. I enjoy it so much that I haven't tried any other flavors!!!

Com saudades (longing for our home in Belo Horizonte, MG Brasil). This wonderful coffee is very similar to that which we enjoy in Brasil, but even better because it's for personal consumers and not a commercial restaurant grind. We enjoy this anytime of the day, usually with meals, along with some candied citrus peel. It's the real café mineiro and it tastes just like home! Muito obrigado!
