Brazil Sitio Gamelao Natural Coffee

Sebastiao Eloi Miranda lives at his small farm Sitio Gamelao with wife Tereza. His parents moved from Sao Paulo to Minas Gerais when he was only 2 and since then, coffee has been part of his family routine. He started working as a picker for other farms and at the age of 25, Mr Miranda bought his first piece of land and planted 1 hectare of Coffee.

“Things were quite different a few years ago. We used to mix all of our micro lots because buyers didn’t care about higher quality. The quantity was the most important thing”, says Sebastiao. Nowadays, Mr Miranda produces 500 bags of Specialty Coffee annually, mainly Yellow Catuai. Sun-dried on a cemented patio and a few bags on raised beds. “We are happy to hear that consumers all over the world are enjoying our coffee. Better prices give us the motivation to focus on quality”.

Cherries are carefully handpicked and then coated in a tank of water to separate by density. The densest, ripest cherries sink to the bottom of the tank and the oaters are removed. The remaining high-quality cherries are then dried on the patio in the sun with skin and pulp intact until the optimum moisture content has been reached. The cherries must be carefully maintained and turned to prevent over- fermentation or mould developing. Once the dried coffee cherries have been rested for a month, they are hulled, graded by bean size and bagged in GrainPro liners to preserve freshness.

Machado is located in the south of the Minas Gerais region. The local area has some of the highest elevations of any coffee growing region in Brazil (up to 1,250masl). The cooler climate allows for a slow cherry development, mild but distinct acidity and nice healthy trees!

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID and the cost-of-living crisis brings, many are tightening the purse strings and choosing cheaper alternatives. However...For more: Comunicaffe International
...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
