Quote from Petunia:
From the farmer to the roaster, consistently transparent Are you looking for a slightly different green coffee? Consistent? And really special? Then you are right with us. Welcome! Together with you, we want to bring sustainable, fair and preferably directly traded specialty coffees from small farms in and around Petúnia to the people. Green coffee with unique aromas that complete your roasting program. Just Brazilian coffee highlights beyond the 90 points of the Specialty Coffee Association.
But Petúnia means more to us than coffee and home - Petúnia is a mission. What began in 2014 with a casual conversation is already a small movement. Petúnia should become the epitome of special specialty coffees from Brazil. Together with the local coffee farmers. For better coffee quality.
For more ecology in cultivation and processing. For a decent payment for everyone who makes a living from coffee.
