Fazenda Cachoeira de Grama is owned by the Carvalho family and managed (along with 48 other area farms) by our export partner Bourbon Specialty. The farm is located in Vale de Grama, which is home to some of Brazil's most "elite" coffee farms, and is an incredibly beautiful region, with rolling hills surrounding the coffee land.
Fazenda Cachoeira de Grama is a 411-hectare plot with about 100 hectares planted in coffee; they also grow eucalyptus nearby. There are 27 full-time and about 40 seasonal employees tending to the Catuai and Yellow Bourbon trees planted here, the oldest of which dates back to 1956! The farm has an on-site school for all employees' families to use, and there are about 300 children who take advantage of the services. The school is jointly funded by the Brazilian government and the farmers in the area.

Loved this roast and can't wait to try more of your roasts and beans Mike!
I wasn’t sure about this one when I added it to my cart, was more just a bout of curiousity than anything else, but I ended up loving this one. Worked very well for espresso. Definitely buying it again.
Tried the Brazil roast and really enjoyed the flavour and smoothness as an espresso latte. I prefer chocolate notes in my espresso and this one satisfies for sure! It is my top 2 at Seventh, along with Heisenberg.
I'm slowly working my way through trying all of the flavours but this one is my favourite so far. It's so good that I no longer put sugar in my coffee!
I love love love it! The flavour notes hit all the right spots. I've had other Brazilian beans before and they just weren't for me, but this one hits just right every time. 10/10 would recommend :)
