The coffee story
We grow coffee in Fazenda Estrela and Fazenda Recanto, two properties located at Serra do Salitre, in the Cerrado Mineiro region. Over the years we have become Rainforest Alliance, 4C and Ceritfica Minas certified and have adopted the best sustainability practices and respect for people and the environment. We are a family-run business and everyone in duty is absolutely passionate about coffee. We are also members of the Brazilian Specialty Coffee Association (BSCA).
My father Afonso took over when Seu Zico passed away, alongside my mother Marcélia. My father is in charge of the most arduous side of the business, the management of the farms. As we say it in Brazil, he is "carrying the piano". My mother is in charge of one of the most delicate sides of the business, the post-harvest of the micro-lots.

This coffee comes from sector 3 of Fazenda Recanto. It was fermented for 96 hours inside a water tank: the first 48 hours without water and the following 48 hours with the addition of water (to help control the temperature). It was then centrifugated and taken to dry on the patio for 5 days.

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.
When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
