SUL DE MINAS
The Sul de Minas is a traditional coffee powerhouse, where generations of small coffee farmers have cultivated hills with an altitude of 700m to 1200m. The main varieties of arabica grown here are Mundo Novo and Catuai, although several other arabica varieties can also be seen. The Sul de Minas is a strong producer of Group I sun-dried coffees. The strong presence of many cooperatives and exporters in the region means that the commercialization of Sul de Minas coffees is a smooth and reliable affair throughout the whole
ZONA DA MATA
The Zona da Mata, in the east of Minas Gerais, is a region with steep topography between 550m and 1200m, which means all harvesting and husbandry is done manually. Almost 50% of the coffee area here belongs to small farms below 10 hectares, compared to a 30% level in the Sul de Minas. Traditionally, because of a moist harvest climate, the Zona da Mata has been the biggest supplier of Group II coffee.
Brazil’s second biggest coffee state produces almost 80% of the country’s conillon (robusta), mostly in the center north. In the south, arabica is grown, and Espirito Santo farmers have developed some very interesting washed arabicas on altitudes of up to 1200m

DRYING PROCESS OF OUR COFFEE
This is the process Brazil is famous for, and most of its arabica is dried in this way. Brazil’s long dry winter harvests are the perfect climate for it. Coffee cherries are laid out in the sun on patios until the cherry turns hard and black. Later the blackened husk is then cracked off in hulling machines, leaving the green bean with some silver skin. Natural arabica is characterized by high sweetness, a clean cup and full body, and low acidity.
SEMI WASHED PROCESS
This method has been present in Brazil for decades. It is adopted by producers across Minas Gerais, sometimes just to speed up the drying process, but also to improve quality in humid regions such as the Zona da Mata, or simply to take advantage of the premium these coffees fetch. The cherry skin is removed by machine, either leaving the mucilage on the bean to dry, to later be hulled, or then rubbing off the mucilage by another machine. Semi-washed coffees are characterized by sweetness, delicate acidity but light body.
BRAZILIAN COFFEE CLASSIFICATIONS
Strictly speaking, grade indicators are used to describe the size of the bean and are commonly expressed in 1/64 of inch. E.g. beans of grade 18 will pass through screen 18 (holes with a diameter of 18/64″), but are retained by screen 16/17. The theory behind classification based on bean size is that coffees of the highest altitudes are more dense and larger in size than those produced at lower altitudes. Similarly, coffees develop more slowly at higher altitudes and often have the best flavor profiles. The size and size distribution of beans also has an impact on optimization of roasting conditions.
Brazilian coffee is then further classified according to the cup. The regional origin will have given the coffee particular acidity (or lack of), body and flavors. Furthermore, the process used from cherry to green bean will add its own stamp to the coffee taste.
Group I natural arabicas are labeled either fine cup or good cup, with the former being soft (‘mole’), sweet, clean and even, and latter being hard (‘duro’)
in the cup and perhaps more uneven.
Group II natural arabicas can be described as one of the following; ‘riado’ (sometimes translated as rioy) which means a slight iodine taste, and ‘rio’, a stronger iodine/medicinal taste
For the export market, there are some standard types on any Brazilian offer list, for example: ‘NY 2/3 strictly soft fine cup’ which would be sun-dried
arabica, type 2/3 according to the Green Coffee Association of New York’s allowance of defects (slightly different to the COB), mtgb or ‘medium-to-good bean’ ie of screen 14/16 size, mild and sweet-cupping, with fine cup clean and even taste.
