It all started in 2005… yes, we’re a young company, founded by two young guys, filled with talented, young professionals with a huge passion for coffee and the history behind the beans produced in our Region.
We are very proud to be recognized as real partners of the coffee producers we represent and it’s the foundation for our way of working.
Our goals are to provide all the support the growers need in technical, agronomical and commercial fields, in order to aggregate value to their products and the unique characteristics they have.
We are inspired by both the new and the traditional. We love to develop and explore innovative ways of working as well as to listen and value the stories that our partners have to tell about their lives and business.
Direct Trade: This exclusive program is designed to establish relationships with a network with over 80 growers and key clients worldwide. Our focus here is to value the history and the unique characteristics of the coffees grown in the Carmo de Minas region and allow them to reach international markets directly, bringing benefits to the whole chain.
New Flavos: We love the new. We love promoting new sensations and pushing limits of coffee
cultivation in our region. This program is all about establishing new paradigms
of taste and renewing processing methods to always deliver beans with unique
qualities to the most demanding clients.

CRIA CARMO PROJECT
CriaCarmo Project® was envisioned in 2013 in order to give the chance of having a healthy and fullfilled life for hundreds of underprivileged children from Carmo de Minas.
CriaCarmo offers the oppurtunity to practice sports, as well as gives citizenship and living together in society lessons for these kids.
CriaCarmo® has already trained some regional and national champions in Karate and Swimming on categories matching their age group. There’s also a local athlete who is the south-american karate champion taking part as a consultant partner, helping the children obtain the health, educational and self-esteem improvements desired, as well as the consciousness needed to become aware of their own role in their social living as future citizens.
We’re proud to say that ever since the very early days of the project it’s easy to se the individual progress of each kid.
