Isabela Lima Reis is a third-generation coffee farmer in the South of Minas region, in the southern Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Minas Gerais is the third largest producer of arabica coffee in Brazil, accounting for 30% of the total harvest. Most of Brazil’s coffee farms are relatively flat and use mechanical harvesters, and in Minas this is also true, but parts of the region are quite mountainous, and here farmers still handpick their coffee.

Bela Vista, with 440 hectares of planted coffee, has both steep handpicked fields as well as the more modern flat mechanically harvested. Like much of the coffee in Brazil, the land is meticulously managed, producing 35 bags per hectare and an average of 1495 bags per year.

Bela Vista plants Catucai, Catuai, Mundo Novo, Yellow Bourbon and Arara, and after harvesting is naturally processed, laying the cherries on large patios to dry over the course of two weeks before removing the dried cherry from the seed.

This lot is from Mercon's LIFT sustainability program. 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 they 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.

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.
