Kahiwa Coffee Roasters
Roaster: Joonas Markkanen
In 2004, the Saldanha family acquired the Fazenda California farm, located in the city of Jacarezinho. Luiz and his wife, Flavia began developing the farm with a vision to produce exceptional coffees that would allow people to experience Brazilian coffee with a new perspective. They found their surrounding microclimate to offer a very unique platform to cultivate coffee. The farm is located on the tropic of Capricorn, the world’s southern borderline for speciality coffee production. Colder temperatures, volcanic soil and four well defined seasons with a good distribution of rainfall enable them to produce truly exceptional Brazilian coffee. Through passion and hard work, Luiz and Flavia have raised Fazenda California to produce Brazil’s best coffee, that has already won multiple prices including the highly valued Cup Of Excellence.
Kahiwa is all about roasting exceptionally great coffees that are based in sustainable business and long-lasting relationships with the farmers. We believe that cooperating and buying our coffees as straight from the farms as possible with a fair price, we are not only supporting the farmers in economic terms but also enabling them to pour out their passion to the coffee. This passion leads to environmental sustainability, ethicality and of course in a superb coffee that we are inspired to present to you.
This coffee we roasted to work especially well as an espresso. We find this espresso to carry great dark chocolate body with notes of sweet caramel and almonds. Enjoy!
