Situated on the border of Sul De Minas and the Cerrado sits the mountainous region of Illicnea with farms rising from 1100 – 1320 masl before the land falls away into the expanse of the cerrado.  The area is made up of 6 communties. This beautiful area is blessed with a micro climate that provides conditions for producing unique and intriguing coffees. The regions soil is known as cambisolo where the rock is still turning to soil, this places its own unique stress on the plants and the maturation on the cherry. Prior the grower’s here really struggled with the winds that ravaged the crops, through inquisition and help they have put in systems and planted to trees to help minimise the affect of the wind. The region is still relatively new in terms of knowledge about it as coffees were previously sold under the names of other regions until recently. Now these farms are being recognised for the unique coffees they produce in relation to the region & Brazil and we are happy to bring them to the Uk for the first time. 

We have selected 5 farms from this region ranging from as small as 7 Ha up to 50 ha with the lots limited to between 11 – 28 bags.
