Although it is widely assumed that this type of coffee is named after Santos state, this is not actually the case.
Originally higher-grade Brazilian coffees were classified as Santos Grades 1, 2, 3 etc. The term Brazilian Santos was taken over in the 1990’s and is used to denote a high quality bean, which is always Arabica. No inferior Robusta beans are ever classified as Santos.
Our Santos beans are sourced for their quality and versatility, within the roasting process. We contract for large quantities of this coffee each year.
