On the Minas Gerais State side of the Mantiqueira Mountain Ridge (Serra da Mantiqueira) lies the Mantiqueira de Minas region. With a century of experience in producing quality coffees, the Mantiqueira de Minas region is currently one of the best-awarded regions in Brazil. Many of the Cup of Excellence winning coffees come from this region, year after year. In 2011, Mantiqueira de Minas received Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) due to its tradition and worldwide reputation for producing high-quality coffees. Coffees grown in this area typically have more complex profiles thanks to the (for Brazil) relatively high altitude and rich soil. There are 7800 registered coffee producers throughout the region, mostly growing coffee on small farms.
