It all started in Brazil

According to legend, the first coffee was planted in Brazil in 1727 by Francisco de Melo Palheta. The Portuguese, who occupied Brazil at the time, were keen on getting into the lucrative coffee market, but were unable to obtain seeds from neighbouring French Guiana. Palheta was sent to French Guiana on a diplomatic mission to resolve a border dispute and managed to smuggle some coffee seeds out by seducing the governor’s wife who secretly gave him a bouquet with the coffee seeds hidden amongst the flowers.

These days, coffee in Brazil accounts for almost a third of all coffee produced around the world. The farm Cafe Pico do Bone (insta: @cafepicodebone) in the town of Araponga-Mg is run by Katia, Cristiene, and their family, which they inherited from their father. Since taking on the farm agronomist Cristiene and her sister have managed to achieve SCA scores as high as 87.7 and they continue to excel.

Why did we pick this coffee?

Farmly is a company with an interesting model. Farmly facilitates trade between farmers and coffee roasters throughout Europe through a transparent model directed by the price the farmers set. Coffee roasters can make an offer on coffees and Farmly openly break down where the money goes - in the case of this lot of coffee €3.39/kg went to the farmer, €0.54/kg was paid on shipping, €0.16/kg on taxes, and Farmly were paid €0.68/kg. That clarity and transparency was an incredible deciding factor when it came to deciding to source coffee through Farmly and we chose two coffees for our first order through them. This first one by Katia and Cristiene we picked for its richness, low acidity and smooth flavour - it’s simply an incredible “classic” coffee that anyone can appreciate. It’s the sort of coffee that you can use to introduce people to better coffee and be confident they’re not going to be put off by overwhelming acidity or floral notes that might be too light for them. In short, this coffee is a damn fine concentrate of the essence of coffee!

Prices and units shown are presented without conversion in the currency and units presented to us, this generally indicates the currency and units the coffee was traded in.

FOB price is the price paid immediately prior to shipping, so tends to include local taxes, transportation, processing, etc

Farmgate price isn't always an accurate indicator of how much a farmer earns for their coffee, as different systems are used throughout the world to determine how much to pay the farmer. For example, in some origins the farmer is paid for the cherry, prior to processing; while other origins the farmer will be paid based on parchment. 

Commodity price is based off the commodity price of coffee on the date of purchase. 

A note from our Head Roaster, Lukasz

This one was another tough choice as all the coffees provided by Farmly were just superb. We wanted to get something bold and beautiful, a coffee that has that classic, comforting quality. Lots of chocolate and nuts, low acidity and a big body. This one ticked all the boxes! I can’t recommend it enough as an espresso milky thing.
