History & Growing Tradition

Cambraia Cafés was founded late in 1999 in order to export the coffee production of the family (green beans) directly to their clients.

After Cambraia Cafés foundation, the family started to focus on mining high quality lots, grading, sorting and separating them, to directly offer to the specialty coffee market.

The family grows coffee in same estates since 1896, and it is established in the traditional village of Santo Antonio do Amparo at Minas Gerais State, since early 19th century. Today, the 5th generation is not only growing coffee, but also exporting it roasted and packaged. In the year of 2009 Cambraia Cafés set up an “State of Art” roasting plant, with modern equipments, capable of producing great value coffees to be delivered to high-end market worldwide.

This project consolidates the coffee tradition of the family with modern technology of roasting coffees.  From now on, you can enjoy our coffees, grown, roasted and exported directly  from our origin.

The history of coffee

The history of coffee goes at least as far back as the thirteenth century. The story of Kaldi, the 9th-century Ethiopian goat herder who discovered coffee, did not appear in writing until 1671 AD and is probably apocryphal. From Ethiopia, coffee was said to have spread to Egypt and Yemen. The earliest credible evidence of either coffee drinking or knowledge of the coffee tree appears in the middle of the fifteenth century, in the Sufi monasteries of Yemen. By the 16th century, it had reached the rest of the Middle East, Persia, Turkey, and northern Africa. Coffee then spread to Italy, and to the rest of Europe, to Indonesia, and to the Americas.
