This coffee comes from three women farmers in Brazil through SMC’s Women of Coffee initiative. Women’s performance in coffee has grown exponentially over the last few years and demand has grown at the same rate. They have shown that they can lead their businesses and gain space in the speciality market. We are delighted to be able to support this initiative through our coffee sales.

We’re so proud to support women not just locally but around the world and believe in the power of community and collaboration to make positive impact.

The agronomist Guy Carvalho bought Fazenda Paraiso in 1990. Passionate about coffee, Guy Carvalho’s approach is quality driven. In 1996 Fazenda Paraiso participated in Project Gourmet in Brazil, this project was in partnership with OIC to improve quality and introduce the process of Pulped Natural into this farm. 

The farm is located in a traditional coffee-growing district of Cabo Verde, in a region that presents ideal conditions for coffee production, such as an average altitude of 950 meters and a climate with well-defined seasons, low humidity and favourable temperatures.

The farm has drying patios and produces both natural (dry-processed) and pulped natural coffee, using modern processing equipment including a washer and a pulper, and a mechanical mucilage remover that is used to produce pulped natural coffees during periods of excessive rain.

Fazenda Paraiso is committed to the production of coffee on a socially and environmentally sustainable basis. Guy, an agronomist by trade, is very involved in this project to maintain the environment and to produce coffee in a sustainable manner.
