Brazil produces around 1/3 of the entire worldwide production of coffee. This ranges from low-grade robusta to high cup scoring micro-lots. We've always loved coffee from Brazil and our favourite coffees tend to showcase nutty, chocolate notes with sweet gentle stone fruit flavours. 

Inhame produces some of the best Brazilian coffee, about 500 x 60kg bags of speciality grade coffee every year. We were able to purchase over half their total production for the most recent 2020 harvest. By working directly with producers, we can ensure that our purchase makes a real difference and that we are paying a sustainable price, with the majority of the money making its way back to the farmer.

Farm Overview

Brazil Inhame is a small family farm with 28 hectares of coffee trees located near to the town of Campos Altos. We were introduced to the farm by Bruno Souza, owner of Academia do Cafe, a Q Grader, coffee farmer, and one of the most experienced coffee professionals in Brazil. 

The farm is owned by Marco Aurelio and is managed in partnership with his son Bruno (an agronomist). They have a strong environmental focus concentrating on the preservation of local water sources and indigenous fauna and flora.

Harvesting and Processing:

Harvesting of Brazilian coffee is typically done using a combination of mechanical and manual picking. They use a selective mechanical approach that does a great job of picking cherry that is ripe and leaving unripe cherry on the trees. After harvesting the coffee is dried on concrete patios until reaching 30% moisture content. The coffee is then moved to mechanical driers that gently reduce the moisture content down to 12%. This method helps to free up drying space on the concrete patios as it can be challenging to find enough drying room during the peak harvest time.

After drying the coffee is milled to remove defects and contamination and packed in a new type of bag. The inside is a plastic liner that protects the coffee from moisture and ensures it remains fresh. The outer liner is an eco paper bag (similar to large potato sacks) and we make sure this is recycled.

Tasting Notes:

We love the traditional flavour profile of this Brazilian coffee. It is clean with hazelnut, milk chocolate, and some gently dried fruit notes. 


Brewing: 

This coffee works well for all brew methods. 

Filter: Dose 15g, water 250g. 

Espresso: Dose 18 gram to 40 gram yield over about 30 seconds. 

This coffee is available as whole bean and pre-ground but we recommend always grinding fresh before brewing. We sell a range of grinders if you would like to grind this coffee fresh at home.

    Brazil Inhame

    I wanted coffee beans that have less acid. After speaking with Horsham Coffee expert, I bought a small pack of Brazil Inhame.
    My taste buds, as I get older, are less defining of all the minutiae of flavours; Even so, I really like this coffee bean, it is
    mellow, yet has lovely taste, and i've noticed, drinking it with a bit of sugar enhances it's taste.
    Thank you, advice appreciated, as is your work and support for all the growers.
