More: The Peixoto family has been in the coffee industry, mostly as sharecroppers, for generations. They are among the very few Black Brazilians who own land in the Campo das Vertentes region in the south of Minas Gerais. By banding together, the Peixoto family (who are well-known and admired in their community for their strong bond) were able to purchase 44 hectares of land and plant 27,000 coffee trees. Now, that land includes a drying patio, farmhouse, and storage facility, and over 74,000 coffee trees grow on the property. Neide Peixoto is leading the charge on quality improvements, and they’ve competed in and won several local quality contests. Their farming practices and Sítio Santo Antônio’s altitude, climate, and soil have contributed to the big sweetness and full body of this coffee. Sweet fruit notes peek out from behind rich chocolate and caramel flavors, adding a complexity that lets us roast this coffee a little lighter than the more traditional Brazilian coffees we’ve featured before. We hope you love this coffee as much as we do: the rich, vibrant history behind it and the bright future ahead.
