Two Brazilian roasteries are also part of the AC Café Group: Café do Centro and Astro Café.
Café do Centro was founded in 1916 and is one of the largest roasteries in Brazil. Café do Centro itself consumes an average of 50.000 bags of green coffee produced by the farms.
Last year, Astro Café also became part of the group. Astro is a micro-roaster focused on specialty coffee only.
Therefore, we deeply understand the role that green coffee consistency and quality play in the daily work of a coffee roaster.

 

 

 

 

   
 
 
       

Additionally we are very proud of our engagement with public schools in the community.  The projects include:

    • Children reading motivation;
    • Recycling: proper recycling of the school’s waste as well as the kids’ education on the subject, so they can spread the word to their families;
    • Lectures about the Cerrado fauna and flora and the importance of the environment preservation
