From Climpson & Sons:

In need of a balanced morning coffee? Best suited to immersion, batch and even espresso brewing, we are thrilled to bring back the easy going honey and stone fruit flavours of Fazenda Esperança.

Fazenda Esperança is run by the infamous and inimitable Bruno Souza, a true pioneer of Brazilian speciality coffee and one of our transparent partners in coffee sourcing. Having first established a friendship with Bruno in Europe, a number of the Climpson team were then hosted at his farm in late 2016. Fast forward another year and samples from his next harvest were some of the most interesting Brazilian coffees we had ever seen, leading to our first small purchase. Visiting again in 2018 we were able to spend more time processing coffee with Bruno’s small team and ensure that this year’s lot is cleaner and sweeter than ever.

Bruno Souza is a fourth generation coffee producer and follows in his fathers footsteps in championing the potential of high quality Brazilian coffees. Having founded a green coffee import business in the US he then returned to Brazil to share his knowledge with local producers. With his own farm as a model of excellence Bruno is able to support other farmers with processing and export guidance as well as offering barista, sensory and Q grading courses.

Situated near Campos Altos in the Cerrado Mineiro region, Fazenda Esperança is seen as an industry innovator in pushing forward separation of specific varieties and improving processing standards. Natural process lots are constantly monitored and dried on patios over 18 days. To ensure even and stable moisture content these coffees are moved up to 10 times a day and then heaped overnight to regulate consistency. Even the varietals of coffee grown here are unique to Brazil with Topazio and Rubi developed by the Agronomic Institute of Campinas (IAC). These descend from Catuai and Mundo Novo bringing crisp sweetness, balance and a sustainable level of production.
