      Volcanic Micro Region of Poços de Caldas - Brazil

The Volcanic Microregion of Poços de Caldas is an authentic Brazilian coffee terroir, where farms are scattered along slopes of one of the most geologically rich volcanic caldera in the world. 

 

With average heights from 1,000m to 1,250mrich combination of volcanic minerals and rainforest soil and a rare climate condition, ​​​​this unique microregion has ideal conditions for growing excellent and exquisite profiles of specialty coffees.

 

The subtropical altitude climate offers to this terroir an excellent rainfall rate and the largest thermal amplitude for a whole day among all the Brazilian coffee growing regions, creating outstanding conditions for the maturation of the beans and triggering a burst of flavors for the coffees.

 

These are natural vocations which join a culture based on quality and sustainability principals.

ADRANO - Origin profile on specialty coffees

After a successful quality project in 2013 - conceived and handle by Volcano Origin Coffees - there were identified some distinct qualities of specialty green coffees grown specifically in the Volcanic Micro Region of Poços de Caldas, with very typical quality profiles.

 

The origin profile Adrano is a high quality coffee that is clean, consistent, uniform, very well balanced, with an excellent bright acidity. You can find notes of chocolatery, nuts, fruits and caramels. Perfect coffee for special blends but also can be used as single origin.

 

The name Adrano is an homage to the 'God of Fire' in the Greco-Roman mythology, very close to the god Vulcano. The name was used by the time of the ancient greco-roman civilization to nominate a land in the foot of Mountain Etna, rich for the culture of citrus fruit, very peculiar a flavour for this special origin profile. This land becomes a comune, with the official name of Adrano.
