The cool, green hills of Sul de Minas provide ideal conditions for coffee growing and produce some of Brazil’s finest beans.  The region is known locally as ‘Vertentes’, because it forms a border between two very important basins in Brazil: the Grande River Basin (which runs to the south) and the São Francisco River Basin (which runs to the northeast).

Henrique Dias Cambraia, farmer of Fazenda Samambaia, attributes the success of his farm to a combination of various factors, not least: the farm’s geographic location; competent technical management of the plantations, with individualized phytosanitary controls of the planting fields; constant training based on total quality control programs; and, most importantly, the involvement of the whole team that works on the farm.

Henrique is committed not only to producing high quality coffee, but to farming in a way that is socially responsible and environmentally sustainable.

Fazenda Samambaia has won many awards for its high quality coffee, including Cup of Excellence. The coffee is processed using a pulped natural method. Harvesting on the farm is undertaken with a great effort towards preserving quality. After being pulped, the coffee is then delivered to dry on the farm’s extensive patios, where it is regularly turned to ensure even drying. This results in a delicious rounded cup with notes of cocoa, almond and cane sugar. 

Roast level: medium roast.

Fazenda Samambaia is very delicious in every kind of coffee method.
