The Cocatrel Cooperative direct-trade specialty division is focused on microlots and alternative processing, but also tastes through thousands of samples to create a blend of coffees that fits our target taste profile for the consistent taste profile of our Luzia blend. All of the coffees used in the blend are grown in the state of Minas Gerais, around the town of Três Pontas.
Cocatrel was founded in 1961 and is headquartered in Três Pontas, Minas Gerais. Now one of the largest cooperatives in Brazil with nearly 7,000 members, inventory management is fully integrated with the quality control lab to guarantee traceability and quality with all lots. The specialty team, led by our friend Luca, selects, promotes and offers the best tasting coffees from the members of the cooperative.
