Why Do We Love This Coffee?
This is an incredibly versatile blend! It has a gentle acidity, silky texture, and sweet fruit character (we get white peach, and palm sugar). You’ll find it at Tenfold as a drip coffee or cold brew, but any way you brew it, the results are sublime.
Why Do We Work With This Producer?
Sancoffee is a collective of coffee growers deeply rooted in Campos das Vertentes, in the heart of Minas Gerais state. They believe in empowering farmers, to enable higher quality and consistency of their coffee, and keep their focus on sustainability and fostering lasting relationships with members of the cooperative and beyond.
Newly christened with a geographical indication in Brazil, Campos das Vertentes (meaning “watershed fields”) is reputed for its abundance of water, fertile soils, and a rich agricultural tradition, specifically with coffee growing. This micro-climate is perfectly suited for growing excellent coffee, and production in the area can be traced as far back as 1860.
Sancoffee began with Fazenda Samambaia, a farm run since 1993 by Henrique Dias Cambraia. In 2000, Cambraia founded the collective with other producers in Campos das Vertnetes to promote higher quality and emerge as a force in specialty coffee. Since the beginning, Fazenda Samambaia and its partners have led the way with innovative farming and post-harvest practices, and haven’t shied away from experimentation, be it with new varieties, or in processing methods.
This collective produces some of the best coffees we can find in Brazil, and it’s a privilege to be able to partner with them.
