Background Details

Brazil Sul de Minas Mundo Novo Natural 16+ is sourced from two family estates in the Sul de Minas growing region near the city of Varginha within the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Fazenda Serra Rica has been in the Bottrel Reis family for three generations. Arnaldo Bottrel Reis, who currently manages the estate, learned from his father and is now teaching his son. Fazenda Sassafraz is owned and managed by another branch of the Bottrel family, which continues to raise cattle in addition to cultivating coffee. Both families continue to manage their estates on a foundation of tradition but they also work closely with the MinaSul cooperative where their coffees are evaluated and prepared for export using a state-of-the-Art cupping lab and milling equipment.
