Presentation of the terroir:
This Arabica blend (Mundo Novo/Catuai) comes from 3 high-altitude farms in the region of Cerrado. These 3 coffees have been selected for this blend due to their excellent quality, sweet aromas and complementary flavours.
This coffee blend carries a PGI label (Protected Geographical Indication) with "Cerrado Mineiro" certification, which guarantees that this coffee is indeed from this region. The coffea plants are grown at altitudes between 800 and 1,300 metres and are known for producing high-quality coffees with a unique identity.
Each certified bag bears a stitched bar code and QR code, so that the producer of the batch can be traced and information can be provided on the coffee.
The GPI label is an official sign of a certain terroir's special characteristics. It acts as a quality guarantee and prevents imposters by protecting a geographical name associated with the unique character of a product (agricultural or artisanal).
Producers from this region will tell you more about the Cerrado terroir and the "Cerrado Mineiro" certification at the bottom of the page.
