Brighteous Brews are our take on 'house coffees' - but we like using made-up words that are fun to say and reflect our west coast surfer values. So, Brighteous Brews were born.

Danielle Fonseca
Granddaughter and coffee farmer's daughter, she started managing the farm with her father in 2016, as early as 2018, when her parents moved to another city and her sister moved to Canada, she had to take over the management alone. Since then, she has been working tirelessly implementing sustainable practices, improving post-harvesting methods in order to show what is most special about Fazenda da Serra's coffee. Traceability of all steps involved in harvesting are available for all lots produced in Fazenda da Serra. 

Dario Botrel
Dario's story starts with his mother, Maria Aparecida who inherited Matão Farm from her father, Dário Botrel de Figueiredo, and embraced with love the management of the farm. She faced many difficulties in this hard work without much encouragement, but she persevered and proved to be a great farmer over the years. The farm is close to the Serra de Três Pontas and has excellent topography and altitude, which favours the production of good coffees. Dario always wanted to follow in the footsteps of his father, who was an agronomist and he learned from a young age to have love for this land and for coffee, always seeing his mother's struggle and being determined to take it all on her own. Taking over the farm for Dario was a natural thing, something he always had in mind. It was pretty challenging at first dealing with the transition to a modern, much more technological way of producing coffee, so he had to break many paradigms. Gradually he brought innovations, technology and adjusted the farm to a new level, always aiming for a productive, sustainable and great quality coffee.

Lucio Portugal
Lucio is a production engineer that grew up seeing his father dedicating to their coffee farm located in Campos Gerais, Minas Gerais. In 2016 Lucio decided to quit his job and help his father at the farm. His passion for specialty coffee inspired him to invest and achieve better quality coffees. Aside from selling his green beans, Lucio runs a small microroastery in Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Coffee Grinding Policy

Open tab

** We charge an addition .50c Grinding Fee per bag for coffee that needs to be pre-ground. 

But hang on a sec!

We'd be remiss if we didn't take a minute to mention WHY we think you should track down a grinder to enjoy the best cup of joe possible. When coffee is ground, the stuff inside that makes it unique and amazing begins to degass. The longer your coffee sit's around ground, the more it degasses and becomes a ghost of the beautiful bean it once was. Of course, there are times when grinding to brew isn't possible, you do you man - we figured we'd drop some knowledge in the event it provides a bit of info that ultimately leads you to a better brew!
