Coffee Farm/Producer: Fazenda Camocim Organic

It opened my mind to the potential of Brazilian coffee and how it could be grown with care and intent. Paulo inspired a number of coffee farmers to follow his example in Brazil, including our favorite farm Fazenda Ambiental in Fortaleza, Camocim. The Camocim Farm at 1200 meters altitude was a pioneer in organic coffee cultivation in the Brazilian Espirito Santo region.


Located between Pedra Azul and Espirito Santo, the farm produces coffee without the use of chemicals and industrial products such as fungicides and fertilizers. It has adopted the methods of biodynamic agriculture that connects agricultural production to the natural cycles of the Sun, Moon, Planets and the zodiac, leading to healthier, more resilient plants. Biodynamic agriculture is recognizable as a Demeter seal for organic farming.


This year saw the largest number of certified coffees being produced, including UTZ Organic, IBD, Rainforest Alliance, 4C and Demeter. Thirty-two of the Brazils Naturals award-winning coffees were sold to sophisticated global roasters at an average price of $11.56 per pound. In the blind cupping of the 16 best cups of excellence judged by World Awards Complex, the Brazilian Natural achieved an all-time record with 9,360 points.


Even if you are not a regular coffee drinker, a steaming cup of this rich, smooth, aromatic drink made from biodynamic Brazilian coffee will make you turn into life long convertibles. Brazilian Burbage is an award-winning coffee from a biodynamic farm that uses sustainable agroforestry methods to produce a balanced coffee with sweet notes of chocolate and cherry. The coffee comes from a farm run by one of Brazil's most sustainable coffee farms.


Coffee specialties produce jams, jellies, coffee blossoms, honey coffee, cascara tea, coffee bowls and the famous and exotic Jacu Bird Coffee. By partnering with one of the pioneers of biodynamic coffee cultivation and cultivation, we can assure you that biodynamic Brazilian coffee is of outstanding quality and also delivers incredible taste. Visiting the farm and getting to know the producers of the coffee you work with every day is a magical experience.


The original 160-hectare farm was purchased in 1962 by Olivier Fontenelle de Araujo and the coffee plantation was expanded to 300,000 when his grandson Henrique Sloper took over property management in 1999. It respects the traditions of the family and does not use chemicals or industrial products such as fungicides and fertilisers in the fields. The coffee is surrounded by native fauna and flora and is a special part of the town of Domingos Martin. The amazing monolithic rocks called Pedra Azul (roughly translated as "blue stones") enrich the mystical landscape.


The coffee plants are 100 years old intermediate crops of macadamia trees with old treetops of native shade trees. These plants provide coffee plants with access to all the benefits of a diverse landscape, including rich, nutrient-dense soils, biodynamic organic pest control, and neighboring herb trees. The coffee and macadamia pulp are combined with sediment, evaporated honey and water to decompose the coffee and produce an organic fertilizer.


The biofermenter captures and recycles the methane gas emitted from decomposing coffee cherries and provides the family with free cooking fuel that can neutralize up to 96% of the greenhouse gases produced by agricultural households. Using an exclusive biodynamic roasting facility, the partners not only grow and harvest coffee on a biodynamic coffee plantation, but also roast the coffee in the plant. This ensures a truly biodynamic coffee plantation for your table.


Fazenda Camocim produces organically and biodynamically certified organically grown coffee without pesticides or chemical additives. The company is certified by the Biodynamic Institute IBD, which guarantees the authenticity of its production without chemicals or additives. IBD is the largest certifier in Latin America and the only Brazilian certified organic product certification.


Fazenda Camocim has its own laboratory where roasted and ground coffees are tested to ensure the controlled quality of the coffee. Meters evaluate the sweetness, roasting and other elements to guarantee purity and taste before the coffee reaches the public. Fazenda camocim is known for the production of Cafe Jacu, which is unique in the world for its indescribable taste and a high degree of purity, which is grown without human interference.


In 2017, Fazenda Camocim produced the Champion Coffee Cup of Excellence in Brazil for natural products. Coffee beans without pesticides sprayed onto the crop. The blend varieties at Fazende Camocims are rather yellow coffees, which are preferred by the Jacu birds themselves.

A bag of Jacu Bird costs an average of $32.50 for a 60-kilo bag, a direct reflection of the pain and dedication in production, as well as its own flawless process and selection, discovered by accident when Brazilian news channel O Globo Rural saw a film about the natural phenomenon. A 60-kilo bag of your average supermarket coffee retails for about $200, while Camocim Organic Non-Jacu Bird tops the traditional market at $450.


From my living room I watched open-mouthed as Jacu Bird carefully selected the ripe berries, leaving behind a bouquet that looked perfect for human eyes. Each worker received an additional 100 reais (about $50) to find a hot tub filled with feces. After harvesting, a single bean was extracted from each drop by hand, its skin and protective membrane washed for hours, with additional manpower from skilled workers.


In 1962 Fazenda Camocim was bought by entrepreneur Olivar Araujo, head of Casa Sloper Group and one of the founders of Aracruz Celulose. In 1962, the farm was bought by the businessman Olivar Ariujo, who was also a well-known tree collector. When Olivar Fontenelle de Arausjo took over the business in 1962, it had a total of 160 people.
