Alter Real is a blend of 60% pulped natural and 40% full natural coffees from Mantiqueira  de Minas. The blend creates a sort of "peanut butter and jelly" flavor profile. Cocarive was founded on May 7th, 1961 thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit and unity of pioneering farmers from Carmo de Minas. Their objective was to transform local coffee production into a point of reference and pride, in both productivity and excellence in the cup. 


Located on the slopes of Serra de Mantiqueira near the headwaters of the Rio Verde. Mantiquiera comes from the Tupi word for the "crying mountain" due to its abundance of natural spring water. The land there is very fertile, supported by a consistently mild climate with predictable weather patterns for near perfect drying conditions.
