About Brazil Clayton Barrossa

Born the same year that the term of specialty coffee was coined – 1974 – you could say that it was fate. But it seems that the seed was really planted when Clayton’s uncle promised him that, in the world of coffee farming, “you work six months of the year and the rest of the time is your own.” Pretty good for a kid who wanted to spend his life on the beach. But signing up for this utopian way of life in 1997, Clayton hasn’t had a day off since.

We first met Clayton at the World of Coffee in Berlin back in 2019. Sitting at around 1,400 meters-above-sea-level, Clayton’s farm marks the entrance to the Pico de Bandeira park – a natural wonder in Brazil. Out of the 55 hectares of land Clayton owns, 25 is used for coffee production.

In Clayton's own words: “My farm will always be in pursuit of ‘the perfect cup’, with true sustainability in mind. Protecting our natural springs and delivering clean water to our neighbors, leaving a good legacy for my children and those that work with us. But I can’t deny I would like to spend my next 20 years surfing six months of the year, and caring for my coffees the rest of the time. Just like I was promised by my uncle all those years ago.”

How this works

Simply select how often you want to receive coffee and we’ll ship it to you based on your choice. It's really that easy. You can change or cancel your subscription anytime.

Shipping & Delivery

If you order before noon we will dispatch your package the same business day. Located in the Netherlands? You should receive your order within 24-48 hours. Rural and international deliveries typically take a little longer and should be with you in 2-5 days.

Note: due to COVID-19 restrictions, delivery is expected to take between 1-2 days longer depending on your location.

December: As the holiday season approaches and we all begin to send treats to our loved ones, the couriers get a little run off their feet. The inevitable delays have begun, so to ensure your presents make it under the tree, be sure to order before Friday 20th December.

Shipping Rates

Shipping costs are calculated automatically at checkout. We offer complimentary shipping for orders of €20 and above within the Netherlands. We normally ship via PostNL and often UPS, depending on your location. Deliveries within Amsterdam are powered by the lightning fast delivery service from Foodlogica.

Morning Hits

Morning Hits

Before we turn on the coffee roaster in the morning, there's one thing we just can't go without.. music. We curated several playlists for you to enjoy while sipping. Some are perfect to relax and wind down, others can get a bit loud and noisy from time to time. Some have even been put together by the farmers we collaborate with. Keep on rocking in the free world!
