Our Traceability Project for small and micro lots was born in 2000, to allow roasters all over the world to rotate a selection coffees with differing processes, origins and varietals. We’ve worked with many of the farms and cooperatives for over 30 years, allowing consumers to try different tastes and aromas in addition to providing a direct line to the producers behind the beans.

BRAZIL - Natural Red Catuaí Donas do Café

30kg grainpro bags

Donas do Café is an exciting female empowerment project created by our sourcing partner SMC. They’re partnering strong, female-led and quality-centered farms like Fazenda Piedade, with women producers who would like to make “the jump” from commercial grade coffee to gourmet and specialty-grade coffee production. Mentoring, site-visits, lectures and courses with agronomists and experts are just a few of the activities that the Donas do Café project seeks to offer to the female-led farms involved.

Sandalj is also women-owned, and we’re proud and happy to partner with SMC and all the donas involved in their project, by sharing with them know-how from our quality and purchasing departments. Women-owned and led companies play an important role in coffee production, as they tend to be very involved within their communities, helping mothers work and keeping children in school.

This wonderful red Catuaí lot by Fazenda Piedade is grown on over 200 hectares in southern Minas, at around 1000 metres above sea level. The farm is proudly run by the founder’s widow Olga and her children. Harvested May through August, it has notes of berries, raisins and honey.
