Flavours of hazelnut, caramel and honey.
We are thrilled for our Brazil SanCoffee to have been shortlisted as finalists for the IQFA Awards in Ireland in July 2023. We had the pleasure of being nominated alongside other great businesses and are so proud that our very own coffee made the finals for Best Hot Beverages 2023.
This fully traceable, transparently traded coffee comes from the San Antonio estate in the South of Minas Gerais. SanCoffee is a cooperative made up of 20 fazendas or estates.
SanCoffee have a centralised lab, warehouse and dry mill, as well as a dedicated team of Q Graders who manage the quality for all the member estates. Working as a group through the central lab enables estates to share and gain from the collective’s many years of combined experience. More so, having total control of their warehouse and dry mill enables complete traceability and precise milling specifications for customers.
SanCoffee as a collaborative export partnership have managed to mitigate the influence of a dangerously low market price. And in most cases, premiums to growers are 30-50% higher than both the local and C price market rates. SanCoffee and its members continue to mobilise and collaborate to strengthen the ability for its members to sell at above local market rates, in turn championing economic sustainability.
This 80+ points graded coffee is a real winner offering flavours of hazelnut, caramel and honey working as an excellent single origin coffee as well as contributing natural sweetness towards any blend.
SanCoffee has long been committed to the sustainability of its activities, whether in terms of environmental preservation or social responsibility, aiming to improve living conditions in the surrounding communities and contribute to the future of generations to come.
As coffee growers, we are deeply connected with nature but also involved with the most important economic activity in our region. Thus, we strongly believe we can collaborate more with the planet and our people.
Climate change is undoubtedly one of the major issues we are facing, it poses a real threat to the future of coffee growing. Therefore, we see it as a natural evolution to start working on our carbon footprint. In 2020, for the first time, we have been able to offset 100% of greenhouse gases emissions corresponding to the year 2019, to become one of the first coffee coops to achieve Carbon Neutrality in Brazil.
