Minas Gerais: Traditionally, it produces fine, full-bodied coffees with aroma and natural sweetness content.

With regard to coffee cultivation, it is possible to subdivide the State of Minas Gerais into two locations: the Cerrado Mineiro and Alta Mogiana regions.

The first one was highlighted in the national scenario due to the high quality of its grains and the integration with the community. Already in the Alta Mogiana, its grain is marked by the body, balanced acidity, natural sweetness and caramelized fragrance.

Rainforest Alliance

Rainforest Alliance is a non-governmental organization that works to preserve biodiversity and enforce sustainability through practices regarding the use of the soil, commercial activities and consumption.

Rainforest Alliance issues a seal or certificate that identifies and ensures the product was produced with responsibility.

Therefore, they devised a Chain of Custody (CoC) Certification system that establishes the criteria of auditions to be held in companies that acquire products from farms certified by Rainforest Alliance.

CoC is a traceability process tracing products from its origination in a certified farm through to final consumers, following up every single intermediate stage of fabrication, transport, commercialization and storage, thus ensuring that all declarations of sustainability have been verified.

Rainforest Alliance audition and certification services are managed and carried out in their RA-Cert business unit, which is an authorized certifier that undertakes auditions enforcing Rainforest Alliance’s Sustainable Agriculture Standards.

As a result, farms and companies that have been certified are entitled to use the Green Frog Seal – Rainforest Alliance Certified.

Their major goal is to elevate the Brazilian standards of excellence that will be delivered on both domestic and international markets.

The organization understands that Special Coffees are those that are free from impurities and defects and have special sensorial attributes, which means the beverage will present cleanliness, sweetness, and a well-bodied and acidity balance.

In addition to these qualities, Special Coffees must provide certified traceability and respect all social, economic and environmental sustainability criteria regarding every single production step to be taken.

BSC – Brazilian Special Coffee is the only Brazilian institution that certifies lots that can be monitored by means of the Special Coffees Quality Control seals.

In 1998, in association with Alliance for Coffee Excellence (ACE), BSC created the coffee quality contest Cup of Excellence Brazil. This contest enables producers to trade their coffees at auctions conducted on the Internet where deals are made at well valued prices when compared to conventional markets.
