Fazenda Samambaia has a story as rich as any on earth. The Cambraia family is now on its fourth generation of operation. Like other businesses which extend into years and years of operation, adaptation and new strategies must be made. It was in the hands of the family’s most recent member, Henrique Cambraia, that the farm pivoted and took a strong focus on specialty coffee.
Embracing innovation and technology, hiring studied professionals and utilizing resources available from a country known for coffee production, Henrique furthered an operation that is as organized and successful as we have seen.
This Yellow Catuai has full transparency down to the lots where it came from the days on which it was picked. It is a beautiful representation not only of Samambaia but of this traditional producing region of Brazil.
