Falcafé is a coffee cooperative with branches in Mogiana and Sul de Minas, the two most important coffee-growing regions of Brazil.
Falcafé forms collaborative partnerships with local farmers providing financial assistance, knowledge, and resources to build their capacity, encourage sustainable farming practices and drive the production of specialty-grade coffee that is sought-after internationally.
By working together, farmers and co-op can improve their coffee quality and strengthen their position in the supply chain. Farmers end up getting a better deal for their coffee, resulting in a more sustainable and equitable economic growth across the region.
Falcafé also provides farmers with an international platform to showcase their product, by doing their marketing, setting up social media accounts, organising events, and attending coffee expos around the world.
The annual coffee quality awards and auction organised by Falcafé attracts buyers from all over the world looking for the latest and greatest in specialty coffee.
Some of winning micro-lots lots, exceedingly high in cupping score, can fetch thousands of dollars at the auction. That is a massive incentive for the farmers to keep improving and committed to producing the highest quality coffee possible.
