Brazil Ondas Da Mantiqueira

Cupping notes

Chocolate, syrupy, cherry, hazelnut and peach.


Nestled close to a small grove of Jabuticaba trees lies the brick and concrete patios, raised beds, and dry mill for Ondas da Mantiquiera – an organic farm of sixteen plots and 250,000 coffee trees. The farm house to this 200 year old farm impressively stands in contrast to the green, pale yellow with red tiles and white walled out-houses containing machinery in blue.

An oddity in Brazil, Ondas Da Mantiqueira is an organic farm – Itagiba, the current owner since 2012 is committed to producing the best that he can, regenerating the soil to improve productivity, reworking some areas to improve tractor access, and using what he has to transport coffee down hill via water channels and gravity. All 17 employees that work for the farm live in properties on site.

They produce bananas at eth farm as well as the crop cycles balance nicely with bananas providing shade, and eucalyptus reforestation efforts are ongoing, as well as a small portion of the farm given over to growing their own food too.

Coffee is processed on either concrete or brick patios depending on volume at the time – there are two brick and one concrete with raised beds reserved for the microlots. Any machine drying needed is done fuelled by the pruning from his farm.

Nick and I (Jamie) headed out at the end of July to Sao Paulo with a day to briefly recover and explore the nearby Ibirapuera Park. We’d be up at 5am Monday for the next leg heading up to Minas Gerais, a state divided in to four parts (Sul de Minas, Chapada de Minas, Matas de Minas, and Cerrado), and so begin our further education on the world’s largest coffee producing country.
