We are proud to offer the first certified Organic Fair Trade coffee from Brazil. The grower's cooperative, Association of Small Producers of Poco Fundo, is an amazing, dynamic group of farmers that has been working since 1985 to gain international accreditation for their work in organics and to be accepted on the fair trade registry. The group's mission is to improve the social, economic and ecological conditions of the families of Poco Fundo, a small municipality of 15,000 people, located in the southern part of the state of Minas Gerais. This has required an amazing commitment of time, energy and money on the farmer's part, but abundant personal energy is what Brazilians are known for!

I have been doing the samba in Brazil on and off since 1988, teaching courses on environmental conflict resolution, working with indigenous communities to confront oil and gas development, and just loving the people and the country. I have long felt that any people who could invent the string bikini, mix drinks like the caipirina, produce writers like Jorge Amado, survive annual Carnivale and dance til dawn on a regular basis could conquer the world in their spare time! I love these folks!

The coffee is just like the people- rich and tangy, earthy and voluptuous. Like a seductive night in Rio, the coffee has many facets, so we only use it by itself. We shake it up by combining medium and dark roasted beans in our Samba! Blend. Loosen up a little and give it a try!
