What’s the story?

A fudgy sweet Brazilian coffee is a beautiful thing. Specialty coffee from the best growing regions in Brazil offer a delicious balance of sweetness, nuttiness and gentle hints of soft fruit acidity. We take great care in choosing the right one, as these coffees form the base of our best selling house blends. This blend of multiple farms and estates is something we have used as the base for our Barnraiser and 60/40 espresso blends for a few years, giving them their buttery chocolate base. It’s also so so good on its own as an easy drinking dream of all day choc ‘n’ nut coffee. 

It has all the sweetness you could ever want from a coffee. Think of a big old slice of apple crumble to start, slap some peanut butter on top and grate some dark chocolate over the top of that and you are close. Through milk the chocolate notes are enhanced, black there is a touch of sweet and nutty in the finish like chocolate covered chestnuts.

This lot was sourced from Andrea Ribeiro Silva’s farm Fazenda Aragão as part of the Café Delas Program, an initiative from our mates at Covoya Specialty, who import the coffee and work closely with farmers of all sorts of origins. 

We pay a premium for the coffee and Cafe Delas project uses it to support women farmers, with multiple checks to ensure that women have had a direct hand in the coffee production process, and that they are paid accordingly. 

Since 2015, Covoya’s sister company Olam Brazil has been working in gender equality projects in Brazil, training women to improve the yield and quality of their coffee and empowering them through workshops and events. Women have significant impact in coffee farming in that they influence the young people and thus farm succession planning, they work on picking and drying coffee which impacts quality and they facilitate traceability as overall women are more organised than men.
