The Coffee

This fruity, floral coffee offers something quite different to the classic hazelnut and chocolate profile you might expect from Brazil – though impressively it delivers some of those flavours too. It’s an unusually complex and delicate Brazilian natural, grown on a 10 hectare plot by Geraldo José de Oliveira from the Coopfam co-operative. Meticulously and selectively picked by hand, this microlot is full of surprises.

Meet the Producer

Geraldo José de Oliveira is a smallholder farmer and member of the Coopfam co-operative. We’ve been buying from this group of farmers for over a decade and we’re actually their longest-standing customer outside of Brazil. Why do we like them so much? They’re a young, passionate team who are set on becoming the best choice for smallholder farmers in their area by offering the best prices, the best facilities and the best marketing. They've really re-invested in growing the co-operative over the years, adding warehousing, a roastery and a coffee shop, while funding social projects which support their members - and we've been able to help support two of those projects in Coopfam's home town for three years running. One is an education centre for 32 children with cognitive disabilities, which uses occupational therapy and speech therapy to help them to participate as independently as possible in daily activities. The second is a day centre which runs music workshops for about 150 vulnerable local children who need an escape from difficult home lives.
