Veloso Coffee

The Veloso family has been producing specialty coffees in the Cerrado Mineiro region in the countryside of coffee-rich Minas Gerais, Brazil, for decades. This coffee is grown on the family's Paraiso and Santa Cecilia farms on wide plots surrounded by protected wildlife regions. The Velosos maintain 38% of their land as natural forest—well above the Brazilian agricultural regulation of 20%.

For the Velosos, investing in reforestation and conservation of the local biodiversity proves to neighboring farms that it is an important component of the collective sustainability of coffee. The lot is naturally processed: it is spread on drying patios until they reach an 11.5% moisture content, then dry-milled.

Guatemala San José

Finca San José is led by mother-daughter duo Miriam and Florence, and is located in Antigua, a volcanic region with ideal growing conditions. For over 20 years, the pair has worked with dry mill and long-term Joe partner, Beneficio Bella Vista.

Renowned for their passion for making education more equitable and accessible for producers, Bella Vista has been a driving force behind forging meaningful relationships with local farmers.
