     Brazil Campos Altos

    The Coffee
    Founded in 2008, by the entrepreneur, José Maria de Oliveira, Café Campos Altos is synonymous with taste and quality. Our coffee is sown in the city of Campos Altos in Minas Gerais. Its prime location between Atlantic Forest and the Brazilian Cerrado, a savanna biome, coupled with mountainous terrain provides the perfect conditions for cultivating the best seedlings, which results in a high quality coffee with unparalleled aroma and flavor.

    The Story
    Born in 1956 in the city of Campos Altos-MG, Jose Maria de Oliveira at age 16 moved into the Belo Horizonte-MG city, to follow up on his studies. For love for his homeland and following the family tradition in the area of coffee and cattle, in 2004 returned to the city of Campos Altos acquiring the Fazenda Santa Luzia and later the Serrinha and Mirante. They performed several improvements and is now a model farm of innovation, technology and infrastructure, believing in the quality of coffee in the region.

    The Roast
    A relatively soft coffee, The Brazil Campos Altos wants a gentle touch. It is delicate and, fortunately with the roasting equipment we have, we can provide a little gentleness early in the roast. Once the coffee is adequately taking on heat, the coffee’s natural nuttiness and creamy body flourish and are balanced with an equally mild texture and silky mouthfeel. With a smooth body and lasting creamy finish,  this coffee is a perfect cup for every day pleasure.
