Matas de Minas Project - Specialty & Organic
With great pleasure I would like to introduce The Coffee Quest's new project in Matas de Minas in Brazil. By initiative of the younger generation we are embarking in a new project focused on specialty coffee from famous region of Minas Gerais. Last year we came into contact with Juan Vargas from Fazendas Klem, after commenting on some of the beautiful pictures on Instagram. Over the course of many conversations he introduced me to the work they are doing to lift the quality on their farms, as well as setting the example locally to start producing organically. Equipped with a new mind-set, the new generation of farmers realizes that a step-by-step change to producing better quality can offer a better alternative to provide in their future livelihoods. As The Coffee Quest we aim to provide a stable market for these higher quality coffees. The combined objective of all participants in the project to grow together and reach out directly to roasters on the market side. As world’s largest producing country you can say that the consumers drinking preferences have evolved side-by-side with global production. The lower altitude coffee from this colorful country gives out heavy dark chocolate and nutty flavors. However, with the market in Europe becoming more quality-oriented, the demand for complex coffee grows. Our intention is to target roasters interested in buying brighter Brazil’s with new flavors, while keeping part of the original profile that people love.Producers in the Matas de Minas are used to selling there volumes to local traders who take this to export market in Varginha, on the other side of Minas Gerais. Our intention is to develop a transparent market and stimulate the production of quality beans. The new '17 harvest samples are promising, as we now offer a range of washed, honey, semi-washed and natural lots, including some amazing micro lots and well selected Organic Certified coffees. Upcoming November will be the arrival of our first container from Brazil. The Coffee Quest is inviting you to get Direct! samples to find the perfect Brazil for you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the possibilities of becoming more involved and create a direct relationship that will assure you great quality with continuity for upcoming years.
