Farmer Carlos Penna is a member of APROD, cooperative of smallholders that works together to produce specialty coffee under strict quality control and traceability standards. The coop focuses on agroforestry management to create a more productive, profitable and sustainable land-use practice. All of these result, of course, to great cup quality. Brazilian micro-lots have come a long way in the last few years and offer complexity way beyond the Studentenfutter (trail mix)-like stereotype.
Kamba Coffee is the result of an idea put together by friends and coffee lovers that have generations of experience from production to roasting. After deciding to get involved in specialty coffee sourcing, as each of them was already busy either producing, importing or roasting, they decided to put together a team that would implement their ideas and would bring their own experiences and motivations to the project.
