About the event

FAF Coffee is one of the pioneers in sustainable coffee production in Brazil. They are coming to Communal Coffee to talk more about the company, the production side, and their impact projects in Brazil and bringing their beautiful coffees.

The farm formerly known as Fazenda Fortaleza has been in the Barretto Family since 1850. It was still a traditional farm with 150 farm hands and conventional farm methods when Silvia Barretto inherited and, along with her husband Marcos Croce, began transforming the farm with their dreams. Long a steward and follower of a natural and organic lifestyle, Silvia decided that if she took on the farm, it would have to become organic. The idea of continuing the traditional farming methods and continuing centennial-old strict relationships between farm owners and farmhands also did not appeal to them. In 2001, this transformation began as Silvia inherited the farm, and they changed the name to Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza (FAF), meaning Environmental Fortress Farm. Their dream and mission became to convert the farm into a sustainable business that took into consideration the environment and the relationships between people while producing high-quality products.

Today, Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza is a farm, a network of farmers, a center of coffee studies, and an export company that mills and ships coffee worldwide.
