The powerhouse of coffee

Brazil: a vast country, with coffee plantations of unimaginable size. It is the also referred to as the “powerhouse” of coffee production: 2.3 million hectares of land are planted with coffee, enabling an average production of 45 million bags per year (Arabica 34 million bags, Robusta 11 million bags) and the most professional coffee farms of the world. 

But this is only half of the truth. 75% of producers are smallholder family farms, achieving only a fraction of the production levels of their large scale neighbors. Nevertheless, they are the backbone of the Brazilian coffee culture and the real inventors of the famous “cafezinho”, a sweet small dose of coffee that farmers offer to visitors as a start of a friendly conversation.

Our aim: improve the livelihoods of Brazil’s coffee farming families.
