Behind the Scenes
Hey, coffeeholics! Let’s hop over to the Fazenda Santa Hedwirges in Sul de Minas, Brazil. Fourth-generation coffee farmer Hugo Brito currently heads up this large coffee farm. The Brito family have grown speciality coffee here for nearly 100 years. At present, they grow Yellow Catuai, Red Catuai, Arara, Rubi, Mundo Novo and Topázio varietals. Wondering what your …. coffee is? It’s a Topázio, the varietal developed in 1960s Brazil!
Hugo Brito is making Fazenda Santa Hedwirges coffees even better with snazzily advanced technologies. The team recently spent four years researching new drying methods. They settled on a static box approach that allows them to dry the coffee in a slow, carefully controlled manner and turn it daily. They manage the system via computer programs for super-duper exact attention to detail.
This scrummy lot spent 19 days on the drying patio, which is a tad longer than Brazil’s usual 7-10 days. This is exciting! The extended drying time permits a few more days of fermentation and a fuller fruit flavour. A first-class ticket to coffee captivation? You bet!
Scores on the Doors
With each and every coffee we source, it must have a quality score. This quality score determines if a coffee can be granted its ‘speciality’ title. The coffee must receive a score of 80 or above to gain the name. Have a look at our page about coffee cupping to see exactly how we do it here at Two Chimps Coffee.
As roasters of speciality coffee, we never ‘over roast’ any of our coffees. The roasting process is our chance to show off the awesome natural flavours and aromas found within the coffee. If coffee is roasted too dark, these natural flavours and aromas can be hidden and instead replaced with burnt and bitter tastes. The coffees we source are of very high quality. This gives us the opportunity to showcase the flavours during the roast rather than hiding them. Our coffees all have a natural sweetness and are never burnt or bitter.
All six of our ethically sourced coffees are all completely different from each other. The farmers and workers who grow, nurture and harvest our coffees constantly produce faultless coffee beans. Our job? To roast them to their full potential.

Why buy speciality coffee from us?
New to Two Chimps Coffee, or have you bought speciality coffee from us before? Either way, you’re helping out coffee farmers in countries all over the world. Here at Two Chimps, we always pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for our green coffee. By doing so, the coffee farmers get paid more for their crop. This, in turn, leads to the farmers having more opportunities, for instance, a better chance of an even better harvest next year.
Keeping the supply chain short is a big thing for us. The shorter we can make the chain, the more we can be sure goes back to the farm.
So, thank you. We applaud you. Keep up the great work!
