*For subscribers please note that we expect this coffee to run until Q4 2023, after which we will replace it with a fresh crop from Brazil, hand picked by us and traded directly by the full container into Port of Cork.

In 2018 we saw Brock and Elia traveled to Brazil to create new and cultivate existing Direct Farm Relationships—as this is something that we as a company are passionate about!

While they were there they had the opportunity to visit Fazenda Recreio in Sāo Paulo. They fell in love with the systems and procedures that Homero Texiera de Macedo and his family lived by to ensure their cup quality was the best in the region. From that point on we do our best to support what he and his family have been doing for generations, by contracting a couple containers of their highest scored crop to fit into the Brazil Mainstay Single Origin slot on our offering list.

We couldn’t be more excited to release it again to the world, as we know that their passion and hard work will present itself in each and every cup.

    Really enjoy this coffee as Americano with milk or milky lattes, really compliments well! Please do dial in notes for each of your coffees in the description if you can! It makes it a lot easier to try new varieties when you give those notes!
