Beyond Borders Program

- A Small Coffee Growers Program -

In our quest for greater social impact, we decided to offer the Sancoffee experience to small coffee holders within our communities. This program was created in 2012 and provides tools for market access and continuous technical support. The families are enjoying greater recognition of their work and adding value to their production.

Nascentes Project

- Women united are as powerful as the confluence of waters! -

Nascentes was born from the strength of women coffee growers in Campo das Vertentes. Inspired by the water springs that turn into rivers and create some of the greatest water basins in Brazil, these women have gathered in their diversity to better showcase their essential work within coffee. The organic and plural fluidity of water represents a contemporary and feminine concept. Hence, the name “Nascentes”, meaning in Portuguese where something starts.

Carbon Neutral | Sancoffee

- Sancoffee’s office and warehouse offset -

As coffee growers, we are connected with nature but also involved with the most important economic activity in our region. Thus, we strongly believe we can collaborate more with the planet and our people. Since 2020, we have been able to offset 100% percent of greenhouse gases emissions. Becoming one of the first coffee coops to achieve Carbon Neutrality in Brazil.

523 tons of CO2 offset since 2020

Carbon Balance | farms

At the farm level, we are carrying out research to better understand the carbon footprint and how different agricultural practices may influence the stock of carbon in the plants and soil. We are still learning from this process but hope to be able to further integrate the systems with an aim of net negative carbon operations in the near future.
