Description

This coffee comes from Daniel Barbosa and his Cachoeria Farm in Brazil. He is an excellent producer who has been growing coffee on this 200 hectare farm for the last 40 years. This coffee is the result of a sourcing trip Jaime, our founder, made to Brazil a few years back. That trip only reaffirmed the quality of the coffee from the Cachoeria Farm as well as demonstrating the fair and transparent practices of a coffee producer at the top of their game! This particular coffee is a syrupy, chocolatey, full-bodied coffee with butterscotch sweetness, notes of yellow stone fruits, and the subtle taste of almonds. This coffee is extremely versatile and suitable for a variety of brewing methods.

This coffee is extremely versatile and suitable for a variety of brewing methods.

This coffee is produced by Danilo Barbosa and his sons, Victor Marcelo and Sergio Ricardo. They inherited the farm from Danilo’s great-grandfather Elias, who started growing coffee in the 1930s for the family’s personal consumption. The Barbosas are passionate about coffee and believe that a great cup can change people’s lives for better. “Through this passion and love for the production we are able to spread this idea that coffee changes directly the life of all people involved, creating jobs from the plantation of the seeds to the final cup”, says Danilo.

The family has done an extensive research to improve the farm’s quality, studying several different varietals to find out the ones that best adapt to their terroir.

The farm is also certified by the Rainforest Alliance. Danilo sees his farm as part of the team: “Our entire team is highly informed about the impacts coffee production has on the environment and conscious that we must do whatever it takes to mitigate them. The environment is one of us, a part of our team. Our coffees are produced in a responsible way, both socially and environmentally”.
