Farm/Producer:  Local LIFT Producers

 The Cerrado Mineiro region is the first “Designation of Origin” in Brazil, located in the northwest of the Minas Gerais state in central part of the country. The coffees under this Designation of Origin are “Origin and Quality Guaranteed” by the Cerrado Minerio Region – D.O. Regulatory Board, and each bag carries a QR code connecting it to the specific farm and farmer who produced the coffee. This adds an additional layer of traceability which is often difficult in the massive coffee growing regions of Brazil.

This lot is from Mercon Coffee Group's LIFT sustainability program and is the first time the Cerrado Mineiro has been offered through LIFT. LIFT is working with a group of farmers in Araxa, who are extremely dedicated to high quality. We are helping them digitalize their farm management and then to continue to respect the highest environmental standards in terms of biodiversity preservation of the Atlantic Forest.

Developed in 2014 by Mercon Coffee Group, LIFT gives farmers access to a dedicated and intensive sustainability platform offering in-depth training, access to valuable tools and services, and input from some of the finest agronomists in the origins we operate. Most importantly, LIFT transforms the lives of those behind the coffees we so enjoy daily.

Every year, new producers are welcomed and introduced to a unique and holistic training program that is founded on the three pillars of LIFT: Productivity, Social Development, and Environment. These training sessions include coffee plant physiology and nutrition, protection and recovery of water resources, farm and pest management, and financial literacy—among many other topics.

Mercon’s proprietary LIFT Index evaluates farmer productivity, social development, and environmental impact. Performance is monitored to assess farmer growth and ensure a consistent, sustainable, high-quality yeild. Importantly, the LIFT program is fully digitalized, with data collected by agronomists analyzed and shared via the LIFT app.

Brazil is the largest coffee producer in the world, and production of coffee in Brazil is unique, in that Brazilian farms tend to have flatter elevations, less shade cover, and more manicured fields. They also use mechanical harvesters and produce far more coffee per hectare than other origins. Coffee in Cerrado Mineiro grows between 800-1300 meters above sea level and has very distinct rainy and dry seasons, creating the distinctive coffee of the region.
