      São Sebastião do Anta – low altitude, high quality

      Within Brazil, the Minas Gerais municipality of São Sebastião do Anta has a reputation for producing high-quality coffees. But ask anyone outside of the country and it’s unlikely you’ll hear the same enthusiasm, for one simple reason – these coffees rarely leave Brazilian shores.

      Historically, São Sebastião do Anta’s harvest season often doesn’t match up with the sourcing programmes of coffee roasters based outside of Brazil. And so, with none of the coffees making it onto cupping tables during visits to origin, they are usually destined for the domestic market.

      Outside of our sourcing activities, we recently visited our green coffee partners – Mió - to launch a collaborative agroforestry project. During the trip, we were lucky enough to sample several coffees grown in São Sebastião do Anta – including this specific lot.

      Grown at 750 masl, this coffee is another indicator that altitude might not be the variable that most effects quality. Instead, it’s likely that it’s the diversity of the soil microbiome in which the coffee is grown – directly impacted by the biodiversity of the surrounding habitat.

      Research in this area is being driven forward in Brazil by Professor Lucas Louzada of the Instituto Federal do Espírito Santo and it was him who introduced us to this coffee.

      In the cup, you’ll encounter flavours notably different from the classic Brazilian notes of chocolate, nut and caramel. This is a remarkable coffee.
