Ivan dos Santos. Brazil.
Flavour Profile: Belgian Chocolate. Pecan Pie. 
The dos Santos family has been growing coffee around Mount Caconde for over 40 years. Ivan and his wife Rose are our close farm partners. This coffee has rich flavours of Belgian chocolate, pecan pie and sticky dates. This cup is balanced and smooth, perfect served black or with milk.

We are huge fans of the Scorpions. This is their very own coffee - chosen by the band, roasted by us in Berlin. As a true fan, you want to enjoy the same coffee as the band. 

Brazil is the world largest coffee producer. A new generation of farmers made it their mission to change the perception of coffee in their country: They put in hard work to produce some of the best coffees in the country. In a sustainable way. 

We stand for change. And we believe that quality and passion are the key drivers for it. Our farm relationships are personal. As a result, we not only receive a fantastic product: We also support changing the circumstances of coffee farming by paying a higher price for it.

About Scorpions & THE BARN
Every day we try to change the way people think about coffee: like in music, it is something you have to believe in.

The Scorpions wrote themselves into history with their song Wind of Change. It captured the spirit when the Berlin wall fell: the instant our amazing home was united. Today, we are roasting the bands very first coffee!

On the road or in the studio, the Scorpions love a brew. This Brazilian coffee ticks all the boxes. A rich espresso to start the day or a balanced filter, our Omni Roast Style makes it perfect for both. Enjoy: the limited edition bag is one to frame for all fans!

The Cup

You will be enjoying a fantastic lot by Ivan and Rose: clean, full bodied flavours of belgian chocolate, pecan pie, vanilla, currants and sticky dates. This cup is balanced and smooth.

About The Farm

Ivan is the younger brother of Gertrudes and Joao Hamilton dos Santos. Together with his siblings and wife Rose, a partnership began with FAF (Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza or Environmental Fortress Farm) in 2008 to change to sustainable, quality driven coffee farming. Fast forward and a whole region has been transformed, with neighbours collaborating and following the best possible farming practices.

Named after the Brazilian Roadrunner which is native to the area, Ivan and Roses Sitio Seriema farm is a model of modern, responsible coffee production. We first tasted coffees from the family in 2014 and they have helped change our perception of Brazilian coffees. With a high proportion of Brazilian coffee produced at the lower ‘commodity’ standard, it has been an intriguing journey to see the beautiful terroir of the country properly expressed.

Our relationship with Ivan and Rose has grown over the years and we have started investing in upgrades at their farm. With improved water treatment facilities the farm now fully cleans all water before releasing it back into the environment. Working with FAF, this project is now spreading across the region: helping to deliver a more sustainable model of coffee production.

The Process

Ripe cherries are picked by hand to be naturally processed and dried on the farm. At the height of the season, when the volume of picked cherries is greatest, beans are sometimes transferred to the neighbouring fazenda belonging to Ivans brother. For their naturally processed lots, the whole cherry is transferred to raised African beds to slowly dry in the sun. The warmth of the region provides the perfect conditions for high quality natural processing that helps to impart sweet depth to the beans.
