Abstract.Coffee is a valued product because of its quality that is influenced by several factors such as sun exposure face. The quality of the coffee is evaluated through of sensory test known as cup test, besides the numerical score, tasters can describe using comments and the predominant features. The goal of this study was to characterize sensorially the coffees produced in the Matas de Minas region (Minas Gerais, Brasil), from the comments of the tasters, in two sun exposure face. Sensory quality data of coffees were obtained of 14 municipalities in the region of Matas de Minas, for this were evaluated 234 sample points. The exposed faces studied were Soalheira (exposure to afternoon sunlight) and Noruega (exposure to morning sunlight). In each sample point were collected 3 kg of coffee cherries for subsequent sensory analysis, which was done by three tasters, using the methodology of the CoE (Cup of Excellence) improved by BSCA (Brazil Specialty Coffee Association). In order to analyse the comments we used the Content Analysis Method. In general, it can be observed that independent of the sun exposure face can produce specialty coffee in the region of Matas de Minas. In the faces that were studied the coffees were described with floral or citric aromas, intermediate sweetness, remarkable acidity, prolonged aftertaste, caramel flavor and creamy.
