Behind the Beans

We named this coffee after Carnival, the biggest festival in Brazil.

Carnival is a blend of beans from two farms in the city of Lambari, Brazil. Both Fazenda Mombuca and Fazenda Paraguai are located in the Sul de Minas region. The coffee grown in this region makes up about 30% of the country’s coffee exports!  

Fazenda Mombuca is located in the Bairro Jacú e Mombuca community. The farm is owned and managed by Gabriel Lelis Junqueira de Paiva, his wife Ana, and their children Gabriel, Luiz, and Kaic.

After years of working in the dairy industry, Gabriel began his journey in coffee production in 1994 when he planted some coffee trees on a piece of land he owned at the time.  In 2007, the family inherited the land that now makes up Fazenda Mombuca.

Since then, they have considerably expanded their production, partly because of their dedication to improving processing methods. The farm is now around 15 hectares, which is equal to about 37 acres and has over 20,000 coffee trees!

Fazenda Paraguai is located in the São Bartolomeu community. The farm is owned and managed by Claudio Vinicius Pimetnel and has been in the family since the 1940’s. Knowledge of coffee production has been and will continue to be passed down through the generations of their family.

One of the top priorities of the Pimetnel family is to produce coffee in a way that is environmentally conscious. This is realized through their use of natural fertilizers, minimization of chemical inputs, and preservation of natural resources. Fazenda Paraguai consists of 19.5 hectares, or 48 acres.

Grind Types Explained
Why Does Grind Type Matter?

Grind size affects the extraction rate of the coffee and therefore affects the flavor of the final brew. Because of the water flow rate and pressure variations between brew methods, different grind sizes suit different brew methods better. You'll want to pick the right one for optimum flavor.

What do I need to know about shipping chocolate?
Shipping chocolate is a delicate adventure – especially in the summer.

Our chocolate is especially vulnerable to the effects of temperature fluctuation because we avoid the use of all stabilizers, preservatives, and fillers.

In order to help your chocolates arrive in the way they leave our workshop, we have placed the following systems in place:

  1. We only ship chocolate orders Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays to avoid packages spending the weekend outside of a temperature-controlled environment. Any orders placed Thursday and later will ship the following Monday.
  2. We recommend all chocolate orders are ordered for pick-up or sent by USPS Priority Mail Express.
  3. We cannot offer refunds on chocolate shipped during the summer using USPS Ground or USPS Priority Shipping.
  4. In summer, we ship our chocolates with insulation and icepacks. This utilitarian packing solution helps protect your chocolate in transit.
  5. We occasionally make the tough call to postpone shipping on hot days, and we always update you accordingly.
  6. While we can only offer refunds to customers who have selected USPS Priority Mail Express shipping for their chocolate, please contact us if you are unhappy in any way with your order and we’ll do what we can to make it right.
  7. See our FAQ page for more details on chocolate and temperature!
