Cassiano Tosta & Anjani Annumalla at Sao Benedito

From Brazil

São Benedito

Explore the legacy of São Benedito Farm, situated in the landscapes of Brazil’s Garça region. Founded in 1972 by the visionary Tosta family, this farm is a testament to determination and innovation in coffee cultivation. In an era when the potential of the Garcia region was overlooked, the Tosta family’s dedication transformed it into a thriving coffee-growing hub.

Mr. Francisco Tosta started planting coffee in 1972, as a small producer in the middle of the state of São Paulo, in Brazil. In 2014, his son Cassiano Tosta started production on the property next to his father’s, innovating the entire production process. They have been producing high-quality specialty coffees with careful processes in the harvest and post-harvest of fruits, selected manually and mechanically. Implementing good agricultural, social, and environmental practices, they respect all protocols of the Global Coffee Sustainability Platform. From 2018 to 2021 they were UTZ and Rain Forest Alliance certified.

In 2024, they were selected to be part of the Gastronomic Route of the State of São Paulo and represent one of the newest Geographical Indications for coffee in Brazil, the Garça Region. This year, we proudly present São Benedito’s Yellow Catuai coffee, processed naturally to accentuate its inherent characteristics. Developed by the Instituto Agronomico (IAC) of São Paulo State, this Catuai variety embodies the culmination of years of research and innovation in coffee breeding. Experience the essence of São Benedito Farm in every sip, where tradition meets innovation to deliver an unparalleled coffee experience.
