Le Piantagioni Coffee Bean – Mediterraneo

Brazil – Cerrado, Sul de Minas

Brazil – Cerrado, Sul de Minas

    Botanical variety: Arabica
    Processing: Natural
   

Nestled within the vast landscapes of Brazil lies the Cerrado region in Sul de Minas, a cradle of coffee excellence. Cerrado's unique terroir, characterized by its well-defined seasons and vast plateaus, imparts a distinctive charm to its Arabica beans. 

The result of this enchanting locale is coffee that is smooth, nuanced, and possesses a rich flavor profile. The beans from Cerrado are often hailed for their full-bodied texture, bearing hints of nuts and dark chocolate. 

Sul de Minas, with its undulating terrains and natural springs, adds a touch of sweetness and brightness to the bean, making it a delightful foundation for any blend. Cultivated with care and harvested with precision, the Arabica beans from Brasile – Cerrado, Sul de Minas are not just products of the soil, but a testament to the region's deep-rooted coffee heritage and the dedication of its farmers.

Mexico – Veracruz

    Botanical variety: Arabica
    Processing: Washed
   

Veracruz, a jewel on the Mexican coast, is as renowned for its vibrant culture as it is for its exceptional coffee. 

The Arabica beans grown here are bathed in the rich coastal climate, with the Sierra Madre Mountains providing a protective embrace. This unique environmental harmony gives birth to coffee beans that are bright, acidic, and wonderfully aromatic. 

Veracruz's Arabica is distinguished by its vibrant citrus notes, intertwined with hints of caramel and a subtle floral aroma. These beans, often grown in the shade of taller trees, mature slowly, allowing them to absorb and encapsulate the region's essence fully. The meticulous care taken during cultivation and harvesting in Veracruz ensures that each bean captures the spirit of its surroundings. 

When you brew a cup with these beans, you're not just tasting coffee; you're experiencing the soul of Mexico and the passion of its people.

Le Piantagioni History

It started in 1893 when brothers Antonio and Luigi Meschini arrived in Italy from Switzerland. They became involved in the roasting and retailing coffee and created their first coffee brand Arcaffè.

The company survived the World War and economic recessions. The destruction destroyed the company, but it rose from the ash each time and rebuilt itself.

Coffee Legend Enrico Meschini

Enrico Meschini, taking over his family’s company in 1986, revolutionized Italian coffee practices using scientific methods for quality assessment.

In 1996, Enrico established the Certified Specialty Coffee (CSC) certification, ensuring consistent, high-quality coffee through rigorous inspections, and protecting consumers from counterfeit coffee.

Access to genuine specialty coffee

Meschini’s expertise led him to become a juror at the esteemed Cup of Excellence, often called the ‘Oscars of the coffee world’.

His role at this grand coffee grading competition allowed him to directly negotiate with top-tier farmers, securing specialty coffees near competition grade at fair prices.

Discovery of Le Piantagioni

Le Piantagioni del Caffè, a small business roasting single-estate coffees, was founded in 1994. Enrico Meschini, joined the company in 1999, initially as a minority shareholder, and later as the majority shareholder.

Enrico’s innovative approach breathed new life into the business: the numerous trips to source countries to meet with producers in person, combined with his knowledge, improved the quality and consistency of the roasted coffees.

Absolute Quality

Enrico’s daughter, a Molecular Biology graduate Prunella joined the company and spearheaded the research and development of new coffees.

The company maintains quality through daily lab testing of coffee batches and assigning individual roasting profiles to each estate’s coffee. Coffees are roasted separately and blended after roasting to maintain distinct aromas, with the roasting process overseen by a master roaster.

Two main categories

Di Piantagione coffee is single-estate coffee, individually processed to preserve the unique aromas of each location and respect the growers’ craftsmanship. This caters to customers desiring a distinct and pure aromatic profile in their coffee.

Specialty People Blends are quality everyday coffees made by combining single-estate coffees, creating a range of flavours and complexity. They can be appreciated without expert knowledge, making them a good starting point for those new to specialty coffee.

Though emphasizes quality control through daily sampling, laboratory analysis of their coffee, and cup results.
