Nivaldo Arantes is a member of APAS – The Alto da Serra Producers’ Association.
Founded in 1996 by a group of small producers, their aim is to improve their
production conditions and quality. The producer utilizes familiar agriculture system,
increasing the quality of his coffee in a sustainable way.
Mantiqueira has an ideal micro-climate: rainy during summer and dry during
ripeness and harvesting periods. The mountainous area inhibits the use of machines,
so this coffee is selectively hand-picked.
