Our current seasonal espresso blend is a combination of 50% Fazenda Santa Clara in Carmo de Minas, Brazil and 50% Inza, a coffee grown by a group of producers in the Cauca Department in Colombia. The cup is sweet and well-balanced, with the beans from Inza contributing plum jammy notes, and Santa Clara bringing notes of hazelnut and chocolate.
Fazenda Santa Clara belongs to Paulo Teixeira, a fourth-generation coffee producer whose family has been cultivating coffee since 1930 when Paulo’s grandfather bought the land and started the first coffee plantation.
Fazenda Santa Clara is a 112-hectare farm, 53 hectares of which are planted with coffee. The main variety that is grown in the farm is Catucai at 1100 metres above sea level.
Paulo trained as an agronomist engineer and agro-technician. His knowledge and expertise is evident as he successfully applies organic farming techniques and principles to his crop.
Inza coffee is grown by various smallholder coffee producers in a small town deep in the cordillera central mountain range of Colombia, at 1500 metres above sea level. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks, this region is part of the great Colombian massif, the most important source of water in the country.
