The coffee story

APAS (Associçao dos Produtores do Alto da Serra) is a young producers’ association of 60 members based in the rural community of Ferreiras, in the municipality of Sao Gonçalo do Sapucai. It is located in the South of Minas region, more precisely in a mountain chain called “Serra da Mantiqueira”. This micro-region has become famous over the last 10 years for its awards winning coffees and the pioneer spirit and dedication of a group of producers in the town of Carmo de Minas.

APAS represents the beauty of Brazil’s coffee diversity and very different from the image of the large Fazenda with trees in perfectly aligned rows. APAS members are based in a rural community on a dead-end dirt road, half an hour away from the closest city. The farms are at a human scale, run by the family. People live and work on their farm and one can feel a sense of community when visiting this association. Finally, these producers recently realised the potential of producing high-quality coffees in their region, they are young, dynamic and dedicated to putting their community on the world map of high-quality coffees.

"We have been partnering up with APAS two years ago and are very happy with this relationship. The great thing about Apas is that they can provide different qualities at different price points and all of their coffees are really clean and solid. The selective picking micro lots are really unique, we are in love with this sweet and complex cup profile. And what is most important, the people at Apas are very enthusiastic and passionate about coffee and it is fun to be in regular exchange with them."
