Single origin from Esperança, Brazil

Fazenda Esperança is run by the infamous and inimitable Bruno de Souza, a true pioneer of Brazilian speciality coffee and one of our transparent partners in coffee sourcing. Having first established a friendship with Bruno at European coffee events, a number of the Climpson team have since stayed at his farm on our annual coffee buying pilgrimages.

On our 2018 visit, we were able to spend more time learning about harvest processing with Bruno’s small team, leading to some of the most interesting Brazilian coffees we had ever tasted. For the 2019/20 harvest, Bruno has pushed these ideas even further and sent us 6 separate lots of various varieties and processing. The first of these is the return of his natural process Rubi; a balance of creamy cocoa, dried fruit and smooth nougat flavours.

Farm Story

Bruno de Souza is a fourth-generation coffee producer and follows in his father's footsteps in championing the potential of high-quality Brazilian coffees. Having founded a green coffee import business in the US he then returned to Brazil to share his knowledge with local producers. With his own farm as a model of excellence, Bruno is able to support other farmers with processing and export guidance as well as offering barista, sensory and Q grading courses.

The Details

Situated near Campos Altos in the Cerrado Mineiro region, Fazenda Esperança is seen as an industry innovator in pushing forward separation of specific varieties and improving processing standards. Natural process lots are constantly monitored and dried on patios over 18 days. To ensure even and stable moisture content these coffees are moved up to 10 times a day and then heaped overnight to regulate consistency. Even the varieties of coffee grown here are unique to Brazil with Topazio and Rubi developed by the Agronomic Institute of Campinas (IAC). These descend from Catuai and Mundo Novo bringing crisp sweetness, balance and a sustainable level of production.
