The coffee story
After a long and successful journey as an engineer in Belo Horizonte, Paulo Afonso decided to fulfill another personal desire and reconnect with his family's history and his origins in the countryside. Thus, in 1993, he purchased Fazenda Santa Clara, located in Oliveira, Minas Gerais, where he started a new chapter as a coffee grower.
He started planting his first plots, but without much prior knowledge in agriculture, the support of experts, agronomists and his coworkers at the farm were essential for his development in this new business. Thanks to his persistence and this valuable assistance, Paulo Afonso could organize a long term plan for the farm over the years and nowadays Fazenda Santa Clara is recognized in the region by the quality of the coffees produced.
The background as an engineer gives Paulo Afonso an eye for detail as the organization of
processes and operations. More recently, Paulo Afonso has been investing in the infrastructure of the farm, making improvements and innovating in harvest and post-harvest. He is also very concerned about improving working and life conditions for all employees at the farm.
Having come a long way, Paulo Afonso now fosters another dream that his children will continue the history of the farm and his family and generate even more prosperity for all those involved in the future.

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.
