After about a month of visiting lots of different coffee farms throughout two different states of Brazil, trying over 100 coffees, and spending time with Rafa Marques at Café Arq learning about how small specialty coffee producers are connected with green coffee buyers, I have moved back to Belo Horizonte. You can read the above stories here.
Belo Horizonte is the capital of Minas Gerais and home to one of my favorite coffee shops/roasteries called OOP. This is actually where my love for coffee began, and now I have the opportunity to work with them for the next month. I will be roasting coffee with co-owner Tiago and assisting in all the other activities that make a roastery function. Super excited!
During this time, I will also be roasting coffee from one of the several producers that I met personally and then packaging and shipping worldwide. The goal is to highlight all of the work that the farmers put into the growth, harvest, and post-harvest processes of the coffee, to tell the story of the land where the coffee grew and the people that produced it.
250 grams of specialty coffee sourced from an artisan producer who picked and processed the cherries by hand.
The cost is $38, free shipping worldwide by mid-November. Interested?
I’m looking forward to sharing a bit of Brazil with you through the story of delicious coffee and the amazing people that produce it. I had the opportunity to personally see a unique side of Brazil that many don’t get to witness, and I hope to share some of these stories with you in the form of an incredible cup of coffee. ☕
