  • Coffee trees at Cafundó are grown under Gravellia trees. The combination of shade and altitude causes the beans to mature slowly, allowing sugars to develop, and resulting in a sweet and complex coffee.

  • Cafundó is owned by Pedro Santana, who left a busy life in São Paulo in 1989, and has been farming coffee outside his hometown of Piatã ever since.

  • Coffee is dried on meticulously cleaned patios at the Cafundó farm.

  • La Plata was produced by 15 members of farmer group Aprocoagrosh. The group has partnered with specialty coffee organisations that train them in tasting and evaluation, and buy their highest quality coffees at premium prices.

  • Most of the Aprocoagrosh group's 30 members live in the town of La Plata. Their farms are located an hour or so up steep mountains at an average of 2,000 meters above sea level.

70% of this Seasonal Espresso Blend is made up of Cafundó from Brazil. This farm is owned by Pedro Santana, a former banker, who left a busy life in São Paulo in 1989 and has been farming coffee outside his hometown of Piatã ever since.

The farm sits 1,360 metres above sea level, and benefits from the Piatã region's rich soil and temperate weather. 5 of the farm's 28 hectares are planted with coffee, which is grown under Gravellia trees. The combination of the shade and high altitude causes the beans to mature slowly, allowing sugar concentration to develop, and resulting in a sweet and complex coffee. 

30% of the blend is made up of La Plata from Colombia. This coffee was produced by 15 members of farmer group Aprocoagrosh. This group was formed four years ago, when a group of 20 farmers realised that their location, expertise and passion for coffee gave them a unique edge in high-quality production. 

The group now has 30 members, most of who live in the town of La Plata. Their small farms – which are all 1-3 hectares in size – are located an hour or so up steep mountains, at an average of 2,000 metres above sea level. The group has now partnered with specialty coffee organisations, which train the farmers in tasting and evaluation, and buy their highest quality coffees at premium prices.
