Brazil Cachoeira - Tico Coffee Roasters

Brazil Cachoeira


The Cachoeira coffee is sourced from Fazenda Cachoeira in Brazil, a 490 hectares farm located in Lagoinha in the Carmo do Paranaíba municipality within the state of Minas Gerais. The tradition of coffee production has been in the Family since the twentieth century. Danilo Barbosa's ancestors, his great-grandparent Elias Barbosa passed it on to his grandparent Claudio Barbosa de Paula and from him to his father, Jairo Barbosa de Paula and now Danilo works with his sons Vítor Marcelo and Sergio Ricardo.

Danilo Barbosa, the owner of Fazenda Cachoeira (Portuguese, meaning the waterfall), has been growing specialty coffee on his farm since 1979. For the past years, he and his family have spent countless efforts on the improvement of the production processes and the farm management. They now produce one of the best coffees in the Minas Gerais region.

Similarly, Danilo has always shown a great concern for the environment and has always taken care of nature.  By now, he has added more than 186 hectares of a natural reserve to his farm.

First time buyer

This was my first time buying fresh-roasted (instead of store bought, usually 2-3 months after roasting). The coffee was fantastic, much better than I expected. I'm so used to putting some stevia and cinnammon in my coffee to reduce the bitterness (no cream for me). This coffee was so smooth I didn't need these. I've never had a coffee that didn't need something to cover the bitter taste. The taste of the Brazil Cachoeria was very rich and I would buy it again. However, they have so many interesting varieties, I'm trying others first!

Smooth, rich, versatile and delicious

I brewed this coffee, hand ground at 838 micron size, with my Chemex. I have drank it both hot and cold and loved it all the same. The flavor has caramel and chocolate notes - divine! The Cachoeira is low in acid (my belly says so!) and isn't super high in caffeine (no jitters). I live in CT and am thrilled I can order these in 5lb bags so I don't have to order as frequently. For two years, I used to drink a lovely, super dark roast from a Vermont-based roaster but now that I have tried this Cachoeira, the other coffee simply doesn't taste as good anymore.
