All the coffees follow our strict quality control system, with coffee beans being originated farm-traceable, processed, blended and cupped, matching one the standards of our specialty coffees.
Besides, we promote a close relationship with the farmers, providing them training about the best agricultural and harvesting practices, post-harvesting techniques for specialty coffees, making them able to continuously improve their quality, and, consequently, to improve the prices they receive and turn it into a sustainable long-term relationship.
This is a new channel for clients to grow their coffee business through the reliable partnership developed with O’Coffee – Brazilian Estates.
