Alto Alegre

Country: Brazil

Alto Alegre Coffees is managed by a family of traditional coffee growers who have cultivated the fertile soil of South Minas Gerais since 1880. Today the 5th generation continues this passion for the coffee business.

Located in the city of Jacutinga (Southern Minas Gerais), in the High Frontier Mogiana, the farm is in the optimal place to grow Arabica coffee. In addition to the ideal climate and soil, the farm is at an extremely favourable altitude for the cultivation of high-quality special coffees, with crops that can reach 1,340m (4,400ft).

The total area of Alto Alegre Farm is 520 hectares, the area devoted to coffee cultivation is 65 hectares with remaining area devoted to growing cereals and preserving natural resources.

The coffees produced on the farm are primarily of the Mundo Novo, Yellow Bourbon and Catuaí varieties which have complex profiles and flavours.

All coffees are planted and harvested in only one property, guaranteeing homogeneity, quality and traceability. The coffee plantations are planted in a level curve and using windbreaks. Solid and liquid waste is handled in an environmentally friendly manner. The farm owners are directly involved, from planting to selling the final product.

Quality housing and a safe workplace is provided to workers and their families who live on the property.
