Andrea Costa is the mother of the Kamba General Manager, Bruna Costa. She and her brother Luis take care of their farm which belonged to their father who was once a big coffee exporter in Brazil.
The farm is where Bruna grew up and where Andrea has lived most of her life. Chacara Santo Antonio has an incredibly preserved nature reserve where you can spot the Guara wolf, Tucans and the Brazilian Jaguar. It also has a beautiful river where the family spent most of their weekends in Bruna's childhood.
The family has always produced fine coffees since Mr Decio started his export business in the 1970s. Mr Decio was always a pioneer in investing is different varietals and processing methods.
However, Andrea and Luis took this passion one step further once Bruna took the lead at Kamba. Their ambition was to produce incredible specialty lots for her to sell and showcase around the UK and Europe. In 2017, they started growing the experimental Arara lot and the result after three years is this incredible coffee. Andrea is also experimenting with Maragogypes and other varietals along with Bruna. This is the first time Kamba has imported a coffee from Bruna's home - but hopefully not the last.
