Our relationship with the Divinolandia Association started 3 years ago and continues to grow in strength and significance to us. This year we have selected coffee from 3 of the 52 current members to make up our house coffee. Marco Ricetto (pictured) has contributed a stunning Red Catuai lot from his farm, Sitio Sao Sebastiao.
In a country where unimaginably huge farms are the norm, this group continues to produce exceptional coffee using small scale, traditional farming methods. By working with and paying premiums to small scale growers like this, we feel that we are rewarding some of the hardest working families in coffee.
Growing coffee in Brazil is not easy and climate change continues to be one of the biggest issues we talk about during our visits. It’s a complex issue because of their unique location on the edge of the ‘Coffee Belt’. This is near the limit of where growing high-grade coffee is possible, so they are exceptionally sensitive to the changing weather patterns.
