“At SanCoffee, our work is a service-oriented mindset and all about helping the farm members increase their quality and provide them and each coffee the most suitable sales channels worldwide. If the farm member approves, the transfer goes through back to the farm gate with the full amount minus administrative costs. Nowadays the farm gate price represents an average ±85% of the FOB price. It cannot be 100% because of inland freight, customs clearance, warehousing, etc., plus agreed commissions on exports (to cover risks and finance promotion for instance).”
SanCoffee was born in 2000 out of a dream shared by a group of coffee growers located around the town of Santo Antonio do Amparo, State of Minas Gerais. Very early, these growers had a vision for the nascent specialty coffee market and for advancing coffee farming in the region. With great support and encouragement from Mr Fernando Paiva, pioneer of specialty coffees in Campo das Vertentes since the '60s, these producers acquired a warehouse and founded the cooperative. Over time, this infra-structure has evolved to state-of-the-art, automated, dry milling machinery and warehousing solutions.
Since its inception, Sancoffee has been a major driving force for the development of specialty coffee in the Campo das Vertentes region. Deeply inserted in the local community, Sancoffee is a proud supporter of initiatives to generate progress and prosperity through the coffee business. Along with the member farms, the coop is engaged in several projects aiming at social and environmental responsibility to ensure the sustainability of the coffee activity in the long term. As a result of these efforts, Sancoffee has been awarded the B-Corp seal in 2019.
In commercial terms, Sancoffee has always been guided by transparency and trust, resulting in long-lasting relationships around the world, with most customers over 10 years. Nowadays, consistency, innovation, integrity, stewardship and transparency, still govern the actions of Sancoffee, seeking to constantly adapt to new market trends and using coffee as a carrier to create a better life for all those involved.

Climate change is undoubtedly one of the major issues we are facing, it poses a real threat to the future of coffee growing. Therefore, we see it as a natural evolution to start working on our carbon footprint. In 2020, for the first time, we have been able to offset 100% of greenhouse gases emissions corresponding to the year 2019, to become one of the first coffee coops to achieve Carbon Neutrality in Brazil.

Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
