The new season of the fresh Brazilian coffees has arrived and so we have a little surprise for you!
We introduce to your our new product – Coffee Kids. The name of the coffee comes from a wonderful sustainability project for young farmers – “Coffee Kids empowers young coffee farmers to create thriving businesses and a sustainable livelihood for themselves and their families.”
Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung has developed this project in various coffee producing countries for sustaining and helping young coffee farmers to stay in business, give them all the necessary knowledge to grow better coffee and live a better life. It is a way of giving the necessary skills to the young people for becoming entrepreneurs in the coffee community because nowadays it is not only about producing it but it is also about selling it at the best price possible and creating new opportunities for themselves.
The program includes regular training for young men and women, workshops, giving the young farmers experience in financial decisions and connecting them with local coffee community experts who can serve as mentors.
We are very happy to buy coffee from this kind of projects as it is so important to keep young people in the coffee farming and being able to give them the livelihood they deserve to be able to live better lives and be able to provide well for themselves and their family.

Speaking about this specific coffee, it comes from Fazenda Dona Nenem belonging to the Miaki family, one of the first to settle in the area of Cerrado to produce coffee.
The Japanese family started working with farms in the estate of Paraná. After the severe frost in the 70th the decided to buy a piece of land in the Cerrado of Minas Gerais. They stated working as a coffee farmer in Cerrado in 1980, being the very first in the region known as Chapada o de Ferro, a volcanic area in the city of Patrocínio.
