BRAZIL. One of the most recognizable origins in the coffee world for specialty heads and everyday pre-work drinkers alike. In recent years the image of Brazil has changed from a place where only the dark, chocolatey and hazelnutty prevail and has produced some surprises. Processing methods make all the difference, and we've been lucky to have some pretty wacky Brazil's on our hands. 
This is a comprehensive (sort of, to our best abilities) list of the Brazilian's we've had in our life and roastery and have shared with you.

Fazenda Santa Cruz is owned by Francisco Sonseca Figueiredo, a man who has been working in the coffee industry since he was a child; sitting at 1000 - 1200 masl the farm produces a wide range of varietals and other agricultural products (cattle and honey baby!). Alongside his family, Francisco works hard to keep innovation at the fore of the farm - to the point where other neighbouring farms adopt their techniques in sustainability and conservation. Of a 960 hectare farm, 650 hectares are dedicated to growing coffee and 180 hectares are their own nature reserve.
That there is the real important stuff, sustainability and commitment to the local environment; but do you know what else is important to us? What does this coffee taste like. That’s another important question. Well, let me tell you.

This Yellow Catucai varietal tastes like Kinder Bueno (top-tier chocolate bar imo). It tastes like milk chocolate, it’s creamy with almond notes, and there’s even a slight hint of orange.

New harvest from Honey Coffee farms has arrived and it’s as delicious as we remember it to be!
Produced by Alessandro Alves Hervaz on his farm Sitio Boa Vista located in the Mantiqueira de Minas region, it’s made up of Mundo Novo and Red Catuai varieties grown at between 1000 - 1520 masl and sun dried, so it’s a natural processed coffee.
Alessandro started working in coffee at the age of 16, when his father bought the first family farm - Fazenda Fortaleza in 1993. In 2016 Alessandro started farming organically and was certified organic by 2019. He also started using selective harvesting to increase quality and put him and his farm on the map! Bee keeping is another form of income for Alessandro and that’s where the name Honey Coffee Farms came from!
This coffee has that classic Brazil easy drinking profile. It’s deliciously creamy with notes of toasted hazelnut and milk chocolate.

This coffee was bought semi-directly through the algrano platform. This platform allows us to chat with the producers directly and negotiate contract and order the coffee and pay them directly. Algrano takes a fee for the platform service and organising import and shipping. We have had great experiences buying coffee this way and with Alessandro was no different.

Disclaimer: This is not a sales pitch funded by from Algrano, it’s just our views.

Another microlot from the Andrade Brothers’ Sao Silvestre farm, this Yellow Icatu varietal has some real complexity not always found in Brazilian coffees. 

Grown at 1100 - 1200 masl, the naturally processed 061 has some clean bright acidity which balances with a classic smooth nuttiness.
