There is a reason Alex LOVES this region: Mantqueira de Minas has incredible microclimates and roller coaster elevations that make it ideal for truly unruly coffees.As an Origin indicated coffee by the regional and state reviews of Minas Gerais, Manoel and his Sítio São José farm bring us a masterful, lower elevation coffee that he has fermented for nearly 48 hours. Like notes of a Dvorák symphony, Manoel’s coffee is an intense palate-pleaser——this is all you need for that “self-love” kind of day.
