Manhuaçu

The word Manhuaçu, of indigenous origin, that say great river (Manã) (Açu). The name shows that since the earliest times, the region is recognized for its natural riches. Today, coffee is among the highlights of the city.

Proof of this is to see, at the entrance of the municipality, one of the most important symbols of Manhuaçu: the statue of the coffee grower. The work of the artist João Rosendo, recognizes the figure of the rural producer, valuing agriculture, sector that drives the local economy.

Atlantica Coffee is present in the municipality. The office is located at Avenida Centenario, 551, Bom Pastor.

Varginha

Just over two decades ago, the city of Varginha became internationally known for the supposed appearance of an extraterrestrial being. If the existence of ETs and their presence in Minas Gerais is myth or truth, it is not for us to conclude. We can say, however, that the city of ET is also one of the most important in the coffee region.

Since the twentieth century, Varginha has been recognized as a pole in coffee production. Even though it is not ahead of the crop volume, the region is one of the largest markets for grains.

Atlantica Coffee is present in the municipality. The office is located at Alameda do Café, 85, Vila Veronica neighborhood.

Alto Jequitibá

Surrounded by lush landscapes is the city of Alto Jequitibá. The municipality is recognized for its immense historical patrimony, with emphasis on railway station, tunnels and churches, Presbyterian and Catholic. The natural beauties of the region are due to the reserves of the Atlantic Forest and the Andorinhas Waterfall.

The relationship between Alto Jequitibá and the coffee culture is solid. Still in the 19th century, with the arrival of the Sanglard family, the first crops were started. Since then, the whole region has become a pole of cultivation.

Atlantica Coffee is present in the municipality. The office is located on Captain Heriger Street, 500, in the Center.

Caparaó

Only 54 years of emancipation (December 30, 1962) and more than two centuries of history. This is Caparao. The municipality, which embraces part of the Caparaó National Park, is marked by breathtaking landscapes, such as the Pico da Bandeira and Pico do Cristal.

Despite the recent foundation, the city has been known since 1848 by the fertility of its soil. Among the main crops grown in the municipality, coffee stands out. Another natural richness are minerals found in the city, such as feldspar, kaolin and mica.

SUSTAINABILITY



Brazil is the world leader in coffee production and exports. In addition to the search for increased productivity, there is an increasing effort by producers to grow quality coffee and the satisfaction of environmental, social and economic criteria worldwide.

Through certifications, coffee growers adapt to good agricultural, environmental, social and food security practices and allow the traceability of beans.

Atlantica Coffee is together in this journey, through the certification groups that bring many advantages to the coffee grower who is suitable for the certifications, walking together towards a common goal.

We work with the following certifications and programs:

UTZ
Rainforest Alliance
C.A.F.E Practices – Starbucks
4C
Certifica Minas

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.

BSCA – Brazilian Specialty Coffee Association is a certification designed mainly to foster technical improvements in production, commercialization and industrialization of Special Coffees.

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.

UTZ Certified is a seal that ensures sustainable agriculture and is displayed by approximately 10,000 different packages of products in more than 116 countries.

This certification shows consumers that products have been sourced in a sustainable manner, from farm to shop shelf, in the whole chain that will deliver the product to your table.

In order to get the certificate, all UTZ suppliers must follow the UTZ Code of Conduct, a document that furnishes specialized guidelines on the best methods of cultivation, on improving working conditions and on taking better care of the environment.

Since 2014, UTZ Certified has been the largest sustainable coffee and cocoa agriculture program in the world. The program comprises coffee, cocoa, tea and hazelnuts certifications.

X

The main objective of Certifica Minas is to advance Minas Gerais State’s agro-industry boosting production by increasing its competitive insertion on both domestic and international markets.

Their main goal is to deal with restrictions regarding the preservation of animals and plants, also known as zoo-phyto-sanitary control norms.

The organization is in charge of the rural development network program, working in association with Emater-MG (Empresa de Assistência Técnica e Extensão Rural do Estado de Minas Gerais).

This certification identifies in coffee growing properties the need of effective improvements and maintenance of quality standards in order to enhance the value of coffees produced in Minas Gerais. Their work aims at new markets and job opportunities, service improvements, proper management of soil, among other requirements.

X

The 4C verification encompasses not only the consolidation of high standards of coffee, but also compliant economic, social and environmental conditions established for the production and the processing of coffee beans, consequently building more reliable and safer sustainable supply chains.

The coffee is considered compatible with 4C when produced in line with the Code of Conduct of this certifier organization that establishes a set of practices and basic principles of sustainability to be implemented in the cultivation of green beans.

The conformity will be verified by the Verification System and certified with the 4C licenses, which will, sequentially, be issued. 4C coffees are produced in 28 countries for more than 500,000 agricultural producers.
