Cafundó is produced by Pedro Santana, who bought the land outside Piatã in 1989. At that time, Pedro was leading a busy, stressful life, working as a banker in São Paulo. He and his wife, Delzute, decided to move their family to the country, in order to pursue a slower, simpler life. The pair invested in coffee to take advantage of the farm’s high altitude and the area’s favourable coffee-growing conditions.
The farm’s name, Cafundó, translates to ‘very very far away’ – which it is, both physically and mentally, from the bustle of São Paulo. The high altitude, and the fact that the coffee is grown under shade trees, means that the beans mature slowly, allowing sugars to develop and resulting in a sweet and complex cup.
When we asked Pedro what his typical day looks like, he told us, “I wake up early and spend the whole day on the land. I love the calm of the countryside. Delzute, my wife of 40 years, works by my side during the harvest and helps with administration. No amount of money could pay for what we have here.”
Note that all International Coffees are not roast to order and your coffee will be from their latest roast batch.
