Minas Gerais (Portuguese for 'general mines') was named after the extensive and valuable mineral deposits found there in the 18th century. It is the most rugged state of Brazil, with more than half of its territory at an altitude of more than 600 meters. The south of Minas is very hilly and green, with a large coffee production. This region is especially cooler than the rest of the state, and some locations are subject to temperatures just below freezing in winter.
Specials: Santos Fancy Astrid comes from the same region as Otimo coffee, but the processing is very different. It is unwashed or 'natural coffee'. This variety is the result of long-term cooperation with the Cooperativa Regional de Caféicultores and Guaxupé-Cooxupé. This blend is a selection of the best coffee in the region!
