A LITTLE PIECE OF BRAZIL TO YOUR FAMILY

Our Brazilian coffee company is based in Edwardsville IL. However, the company’s origins truly began in Minas Gerais which is the largest coffee-growing state in Brazil. Minas Gerais produces nearly 50% of Brazil’s overall coffee production, making Brazil the biggest producer of coffee in the world.

The roasts we produce and bring to the US are meant to be sipped and shared, whether it’s to help wake you up in the morning, to brighten your afternoon, or to savor the taste without ruining your good night’s sleep. We pride ourselves on being “Coffee Specialists” specifically for Arabica coffee beans while also nurturing our relationship with the very people who help produce our fresh roasts, as well as our fellow coffee drinkers.

Let us bring a little piece of Brazil to your family. Are you ready to taste some high-quality Brazilian coffee?

Bee Friendly Farming Certification

We have recently received Bee Friendly Farming Certification under the Pollinator Partnership! The Bee Friendly Farming program works with farmers to protect, promote, and preserve pollinator health while also ensuring a bright future for pollinators and sustainable agriculture. The work of bees and other pollinators is extremely important to the growth and quality of the coffee we sell to you! Cultivating a future for the bees is something we are so excited to be a part of.

Our Mission

To us, the best coffee doesn’t just come from the store; it comes from the heart and the relationships between us, our farmers, and our customers. We proudly dedicate our company to long-term fair trade, showing our commitment to provide sustainable coffee beans roasted by our family for your family.

OUR VALUES

We treat our Brazilian farmers, the environment, and our fellow coffee fans the same way that we want to be treated: with respect and love. While growing and nurturing our culture of togetherness, we are socially conscious of our farmers’ hard work, as well as the preservation of our lands. Positive relationships between us, our farmers, and our customers are an integral part of our coffee company.

FROM BRAZIL TO YOU

Farming is the heart behind our growing and roasting process at Minas Espresso Inc. We challenge ourselves to produce and provide you with a little piece of Minas Gerais Brazil from our family to your family in the form of our freshly roasted coffee beans.

LOCAL BUSINESSES

We love supporting our local coffee businesses in Edwardsville IL and the Greater St. Louis Area! By partnering with them as well as with our Brazilian coffee farmers and suppliers, we are able to provide you with the freshest, highest quality roasted coffee beans.
