FAF Silvia Barretto, Brazil
Notes: Fudge, Cherry, Vanilla
Silvia Barretto and her spouse, Marcos Croce, own Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (FAF), which means “environmental fortress farm”. The FAF farm has been in the family since 1850. Once Silvia and Marcos took over, they dedicated the farm’s practices to organic standards. Their farm is now USDA and IBD certified organic. After years of rebuilding the soil with an absence of harmful chemical inputs, they’ve gained a reputation for producing some of the best coffees in Brazil. In 2005, the family started exporting coffee and working with producers that are interested in sustainable agriculture.

Cost of Production Series - (Limited Availability)
Santo Tomás Pachuj, Guatemala
Notes: Nougat, Caramel Apple, Balanced
A coffee of exquisite balance, and it is cost of production covered! We first met Andres Fahsen back in January 2017 when we were hosted in Guatemala by Terra Negra Trade Company. This is the San Patricio lot, which is entirely allocated to us! It is a washed Caturra. Santo Tomás Pachuj is located in the mountainous terrain near Lake Atitlán. The farm is teeming with biodiversity, and the Fahsen’s dedication to sustainable agriculture has paid off with a Rainforest Alliance Certification. Andres processes all of his coffee on site, which gives him significant control over quality. Through a collaborative research project, we’ve worked out the farm’s cost of production, and have based our price paid directly to the Fahsens on this cost and their margin. The price you pay for this coffee covers the costs to produce as well as our own costs and margin.
