Brazil - Alto Alegre Estate ( Natural )
This coffee is grown 1340 meters above sea level in the south of Mimas Gerais, making it amongst the highest grown coffee in all of Brazil.
Alto Alegre coffee is a family run business who have been cultivating coffee since 1850, cultivating only a single varietal from the estate.
The varietal grown is called Mundo Novo, which is an incredibly delicate plant to grow. As it is susceptible to coffee berry disease and the most common defect, coffee leaf rust, resulting in the plants needing constant nutrition.
However, if grown and cultivated correctly it can have a high yield and an extremely high SCA rating.
The total area in which this coffee is grown is 500 hectares which is roughly 1235 acres.
173 acres are occupied by a beautiful flourishing natural forest which is now permanently protected, similar to a National Trust area.
- Soft Peach acidity with a sticky sweet Apricot body, finishing with strong Dark Chocolate and roasted Hazelnut notes
Banned Pesticides in the UK
In the UK there are strict rules on which pesticides and fertilisers can be used. In March of 2019 the UK Government ruled that Chlorothalonil, a pesticide that helps prevent Mould and Mildew on crops, to be a high risk to amphibians and fish - with the possibility of causing damage to DNA.
Damaging the environment but potentially the consumer.
Rainforest Alliance and Fair-Trade certified coffees are not immune from such artificial chemicals in the farming process.
For a product to have an ‘Organic’ certificate in the UK it must not be produced using any pesticides or fertilisers that could pose a risk to the environment or public health.
One such product is our current Organic Colombian Coffee.
