About the plantation

Planalto means a high plateau. Planalto Estate is a flat oasis in the heart of South Minas Gerais. The plantation has 2,250 acres of land at elevations of 3,600 to 3,900 ft above sea level. 350 hectares of native forest and vegetation are strictly protected and 650 acres are devoted to planting and harvesting responsible
coffee. The varieties currently planted - Mundo Novo and Yellow Catuai. Mechanical harvesting is carried out in two rounds to maximize the percentage of ripe cherries harvested. This system is much more efficient than the standard Brazilian practice of a single round of picking. Up to 50% of the crop is processed by the Pulp Natural process.

Planalto Estate benefits from its very own facilities to transform its coffee cherries into high quality beans for export. Quality is controlled at all stages of production, from planting to harvest, and from processing to shipping. The harvest takes place according to the degree of ripening of the cherries. Processing is monitored throughout by samples taken during key operations such as drying and sorting.

A responsible culture

Being a UTZ / Rainforest Alliance certified plantation, liquid waste and coffee pulp are recycled. The coffee pulp is brought back to the plantation and used as a source of nutrients. In addition, employees of Planalto Estate receive a full range of services as well as salaries above the regional average. The Estate also provides protective equipment and extensive training in security procedures.

Cup profile

Planalto Especial not only offers the typical characteristics of South Minas Gerais coffees but much more. Full and creamy body, excellent aroma and moderate acidity with subtle notes of nuts and berries.

Altitude
1100 - 1200 m
Species
Arabica
Cultivar
Mondo Novo, Red Catuai & Yellow Catuai
Processing
Pulp natural coffees are where the outer skin is removed, similar to the wet process. Once the skin is removed, the pulpy mucilage is left to dry on the bean. This process contributes to a fruitier, yet heavier body, type of coffee. Kind of like getting the best of both worlds if you will. What’s amazing is that regardless of what origin, process, roast profile, and brew method that is used, there is so much that can go wrong. Each step along the beans journey to your cup is so vital to the outcome that it can only extract appreciation from our busy little souls.
