About Planalto Pod

Our Head of coffee

Will says:

“Rich chocolate and malt flavours instantly flood your mouth on the first sip of thick, super creamy coffee. It has very light milky acidity which is dominated by milk chocolate sweetness and flavour.”

About the farm

For the past 25 years the Planalto Estate has been growing speciality coffees in the highlands of the Nova Rezende, in the south of Mina Gerais in Brazil. The generous space (it’s more than 900 hectares in size), the 3600 foot altitude and the surrounding natural forest, contribute to the farm’s unique microclimate - which is perfect for growing high-quality coffee.

The farm is managed by Sergio Mantovanni who, together with his wife Mariza, inherited the farm from Mariza’s father.

A quick Q&A with the farmer, Sergio Mantonvanni:

What are your future plans for the farm?

In the future, the idea is to expand the plantations by acquiring neighbouring areas. In terms of preservation, even though the farm is 25 per cent natural forest, the idea is to expand such areas and plant varietals suited to the local area.

What benefits are provided to workers?

The farm provided housing to all resident workers with access to water and waste services. Education is also provided and wages are above regional standards. A doctor is available to assist the employees and families, and every two weeks an agent of the public health service visits the farm.

What does coffee mean to you?

It’s a passion. Passion for production. It makes me proud to know we’re doing our best.
