Flavio Paulino de Costa is the 5th generation of his family to be involved in coffee production and a superb agronomist. We met him through his work with other farms but were very excited to be able get coffee from his farm Nova Aliança, located in the well renowned coffee growing region of Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Carefully organised and with an understanding of long-term sustainability, the farm plants native trees and fruit trees to promote biodiversity as well as producing their own fertilizers from the farm waste. This attention to detail carries through in the care of their plants, with careful measuring of many variables to assess plant health used to guide pruning, planting and harvesting.

Processed in the Natural method, the attention to detail is again evident in the clean, rounded, chocolate and nut forward flavour profile they produce which we’re delighted to say continues to improve year on year.
