The latest coffees, offers and news from the roastery.
For our Suspension and Village customers, this video will give you an insight to where your coffee comes from and the journey it goes through, before it arrives at our roastery.
Recently Paul and James travelled to Brazil visiting Fazenda Bela Visa who produce a large component of our Village Espresso and Fazenda Pinhal who are the producers of our Suspension Espresso.
Their first farm visit was to a new producing partner of ours – Fazenda Bela Vista, this 4th generation coffee producing family is now led by Otavio, Gabriela and Toni Reis. They are extremely proud of their coffee quality and sustainable practices. They have recently invested in solar panels to help power their home and drying facility, with over 300 hectares of farmland preserved for natural plant and wildlife growth. There is also a school next to the farmhouse where 120 children from 4-14 years old study. This school was funded by the local government and additional support in the form of learning material and computers comes from Bela Vista and Volcafe programmes.
Once we wrapped up we headed further north to Fazenda Pinhal, led by Pedro Gabarra, João and Milau. We currently use their coffee as our Suspension Espresso and are thrilled to be working with them for another season. Their interest in local wildlife is reflected in the work they do around wild bird rehabilitation. The Wings Project, an initiative that supports over 750 birds in their rehabilitation from injury, with the aim to quickly and safely return them to the wild. The project, together with Pinhal’s outstanding operational practices has gained the farm the title of the most sustainable farm in Brazil for two years in a row.
We had an amazing time learning about coffee production in the south Minas Gerais area along with setting up long-term coffee partnerships with Fazenda Bela Vista and Fazenda Pinhal.
