Estúdio447 em parceria com o melhor café do Brasil

Unique Cafés no Estúdio447 Coworking Moema - James & Rosana

No Estúdio447 somos muito apaixonados por café e estamos orgulhosos em anunciar uma nova parceira com a Unique Cafés – um dos melhores produtores de cafés especiais do Brasil.

O Brasil é o maior produtor de café do mundo, com uma colheita de 3 bilhões de plantas de café, que geram um terço da oferta global. Entretanto, quase todos os cafés especiais são exportados para os EUA, Europa ou Japão. Acredita-se que poucos brasileiros privilegiados conseguem tomar os melhores cafés brasileiros (normalmente, são os senadores em Brasília... ) 

Quando cheguei no Brasil rapidamente descobri que é muito difícil achar café de boa qualidade nos supermercados locais. Eventualmente, um amigo do Rio conhecedor de café me deu a dica sobre a Unique Cafés. Produzido em Carmo de Minas (Minas Gerais), Unique Cafés é facilmente um dos melhores cafés que tive a sorte de provar. A qualidade do café que produzem é tão boa que eles possuem o recorde mundial do ‘Cup of Excellence’ com 95,85 pontos numa escala de 0 às 100. Mas não acredite somente no que falamos, se você gosta de café, prove este café por si mesmo. 

Curiosos em saber mais sobre este café, minha esposa e eu decidimos fazer uma visita a esta fazenda em Minas Gerais. De São Paulo leva cinco horas de carro para chegar em São Lourenço – uma cidade pequena e bonita situada ao lado de Carmo de Minas onde o café é plantado. A primeira coisa que aprendemos foi que o tipo de água que você usa para produzir café e finalmente para preparar sua xícara de café é muito importante. Acontece que São Lorenço é famosa em todo o Brasil por suas nascentes de águas minerais, que sem dúvida ajuda a explicar por quê esta região produz muitos dos melhores cafés do Brasil.

Quando chegamos na Unique Cafés fomos recebidos por Helcio Junior, a quarta geração de produtor de café na família e o diretor da Unique Cafés. Com a verdadeira hospitalidade brasileira, Helcio nos deu um tour de toda a sua fazenda. Caminhamos pelas plantações de café, assistimos as cerejas de café sendo colhidas, lavadas, secas e classificadas na cooperativa local (um galpão gigantesco onde os fazendeiros processam seus cafés). Depois visitamos o local onde o café é torrado e finalmente tomamos alguns cafés recém-torrados no laboratório de degustação. Foi nossa primeira visita a uma fazenda de café e foi uma experiência inesquecível. Helcio foi um fantástico guia e graças a ele aprendemos muito sobre o mundo do café.

No Estúdio447 rapidamente descobrimos que todos os nossos coworkers também amam café. Frequentemente trocamos cafés que descobrimos e nossa nova parceria com a Unique Cafés significa que nunca vamos ficar sem um bom café. A seleção completa da Unique Cafés está disponível para compra no Estúdio447 – o Blend, Cítrico, Frutado, Orgânico, Descafeinado e até mesmo a edição limitada Moca; torrado em grãos ou moído.

Agora o Estúdio447 Clube de Inglês oferece um workshop de conversação chamado ‘Café – como o mundo ficou viciado’ onde participantes podem treinar seu inglês enquanto aprendem sobre o mundo do café e claro, degustam o café da Unique Cafés.

ESTÚDIO447’S PARTNERSHIP WITH THE BEST COFFEE IN BRAZIL

At Estúdio447 we are very passionate about coffee. So today we are very proud to announce a new partnership with Unique Cafés – who produce some of the very best specialty coffee Brazil has to offer.

Brazil is the biggest producer of coffee in the world, harvesting 3 billion coffee plants, which generate a third of the global supply. However, almost all of the good quality speciality coffee gets exported to the US, Europe and Japan. They say only a few privileged Brazilians get to drink the best Brazilian coffee, namely senators in Brasilia.

When I first arrived in Brazil I quickly discovered that it was very difficult to find good quality coffee in the local shops. Eventually, a coffee connoisseur friend from Rio tipped me off about Unique Cafés. Produced in Carmo de Minas (MG), Unique Cafés is easily one of the best coffees I have been fortunate enough to drink. The quality of the coffee they produce is so good that they actually hold the world record for the highest ever score in the ‘Cup of Excellence’ with 95.85 points on a scale of 0 to 100. But don’t take our word for it. If you like coffee, then try Unique Cafés for yourself.

Curious to learn more about this incredible coffee, my wife and I decided to go on a road trip to visit this coffee farm. From São Paulo it is a 5 hours drive to arrive to São Lorenço, a small and beautiful town situated next door to Carmo de Minas where the coffee is grown. The first thing we learnt was that the type of water you use to grow coffee and ultimately make your cup of coffee is very important. It just so happens that São Lorenço is famous throughout Brazil for its natural spring water, which no doubt helps to explain why this region produces many of the best coffees in Brazil.  

When we arrived at Unique cafés we were greeted by Helcio Junior the director and fourth generation coffee farmer responsible for Unique Cafés. With true Brazilian hospitality Helcio treated us to a tour of his entire farm. We walked through the coffee plantations. We watched the coffee cherries being picked, washed, dried and sorted at the local cooperative (a giant building where the local farmers process their coffee). Later we visited where the coffee is roasted and finally we were able to experience some freshly roasted coffees in the tasting lab. It was our first time visiting a coffee farm and turned out to be an unforgettable experience. Helcio was a fantastic guide and thanks to him we had an invaluable education about the world of coffee.

At Estúdio447 we quickly discovered that all our coworkers love coffee too. We often exchange the new coffees that we have discovered and our new partnership with Unique Cafés means that we will never run out of good coffee while we work. The full range of Unique Cafés is available to buy at Estúdio447, from the Blend, Cítrico, Frutado, Organic, Decaffeinated and even the limited edition Moca. Both in the form of whole beans and ground coffee.

Estúdio447 English Club even offers an conversational workshop called ‘Coffee – How the world became addicted’ where participants can practice their English while learning about the world of coffee and of course tasting a range of Unique cafés coffees.
