The tradition of coffee production has been in the Barbosa family since the twentieth century. Mr Barbosa’s ancestors, his great-grandparent Elias Barbosa, passed it on to his grandparent Claudio Barbosa de Paula and from him to his father, Jairo Barbosa de Paula and now Mr. Barbosa works with his generation, his sons Vítor Marcelo and Sergio Ricardo.
The office is located in Carmo do Paranaíba, Estate of Minas Gerais, where the team is composed of ten people, cooperating to deliver the best coffee.”

This is a soft, sweet, chocolatey Brazilian natural coffee. It offers some nuttiness and a gentle citric acidity, which makes the perfect single origin espresso. It is balanced and very smooth, making for a very pleasing cup of coffee.
Coffee Grown in Brazil
“Danilo is the owner and manager; his first harvest was in 79/80 crops. The success led him to develop the activity and growth of the explored area, acquirement of new farms and introduction of new harvest technologies.
Nowadays the producer has 490 hectares of coffee plantation, which are carefully assisted by him, his son and the quality control team.
The producer is associated with cooperatives which, in many ways provide information on the coffee market, quality, and courses. For the past two years, the farmer has concentrated countless efforts on the improvement of the production processes and management.
Danilo has always shown concern for the environment and has always taken care of nature, today he adds more than 186 hectares of the nature reserve. At the present, plans are been executed in order to certify the properties, to learn more on how to preserve the environment and to produce a 100% sustainable coffee.”

Last year the company launched their very own roastery, located in Tate Britain, and started importing and roasting green beans from over 15 countries around the world. Their goal is to get great coffee in your hands that are sourced ethically and through fair trade.
Not only do they offer speciality coffees in their own shop, but Press Coffee & Co also supplies a number of specialist coffee shops across the capital – which means you’ve probably drunk their coffee without even knowing it!
They currently operate at 8 sites across London. Their philosophy is to offer the best product at a reasonable price whilst maintaining great customer service and speed of delivery.
They also have a culture of rewarding and nurturing their employees (which is why this is such an amazing place to work) which have led to baristas becoming managers as well as key operational figures such as their GM and Head of Coffee becoming shareholders.
