Araponga is a terroir located in the southern area of the Minas Gerais region. This is a natural-processed coffee of the Red Catuai variety sourced from the Jardim das Oliveiras farm.

The Sul de Minas region is, as its name suggests, an area situated in the south of the large Minas Gerais region. Recognised as being one of the largest coffee-producing regions in Brazil, Sul de Minas is an area that has a long history of producing Arabica coffee (introduced in the 1850s). It currently produces 30% of the national output. It is a hilly region with a mild climate and average altitudes of 850 metres, and boasts some of the largest coffee-producing properties in Brazil. Farmers grow mainly the Yellow Catuai and Mundo Novo coffee varieties.

Most of the coffee produced in Sul de Minas is natural coffee with lots of body, little acidity and fruity aromas.

Simone inherited her property from her parents, who produced conventional coffees. They then discovered their terroir was ideal for producing specialty coffee. They have already won numerous competitions, including the Illy 2014, Abic 2015 and Selo Estadual de Sustentabilidade 2015 competitions, and came 4th at BSCA 2016.

Simone’s specialty coffee production objective is to increase the value of her coffee while maintaining an abundant production.

She picks the coffee by hand using a "derriçadeira", choosing the most mature beans. She then separates the microlots, which are subdivided into four. The coffee is 100% dried on concrete patios and sorted into CERTIFICA MINAS labels.

The farm is located at an altitude of 1,100 metres, 30 kilometres southwest of the town of Araponga. Of a total surface area of 43 hectares, only 20 hectares are used for coffee. The coffees are harvested selectively by hand when the cherries have reached maturity, then dried on the patios in the same day.
