- With a heavy body
Cafundó is produced by Pedro Santana, who bought farmland outside Piatã in 1989. At that time, he was leading a busy, stressful life, working as a banker in São Paulo. He moved to the country with his family to pursue a slower, simpler life. He invested in coffee to take advantage of the farm’s high altitude and the area’s favourable growing conditions.
The farm’s name, Cafundó, translates to ‘very very far away’ – which it is, both physically and mentally, from the bustle of São Paulo. With the help of the high altitude and the shade trees in the plantation, the beans mature slowly, allowing sugars to develop and resulting in a sweet, complex cup.
