    The Profile

    The Profile

    Alexandre Silveira is our first Brazil of 2022, and what a comeback this origin has made. Coffee production in Brazil is suffering at the hands of the climate crisis, and so we're incredibly appreciative and humbled to get our hands on this fantastic lot.

    Rich in body, sweet in taste, Alexandre Silveira has all the qualities of a good, reliable cup that can be savoured by all. It's exceptionally round and smooth, and very drinkable, with an enduring chocolatey, nutty flavour. Notes of baked apple and apricot filter through, complementing the richness with a really lovely, subtle acidity. This is a coffee we will be drinking for quite some time.

    The Producer

    The Producer

    Amidst the dry and arid climate of the Caatinga in north East Brazil sits an oasis of cool, moist and fertile land, home to Alexandre Silveira and Silva of Vitória Farm. In 1992 at just 26 years old, Alexandre bought 23 hectares of land. Well established as one of the top producers in the area, he now grows coffee on 131 hectares.
    This area is blessed with an extended rainy reason, allowing multiple flowerings and harvests, and because of its cool, damp microclimate and higher altitude, produces sweeter and more complex coffees than you might typically associate with Brazil.

    • Wholesale

      We are always looking to work with likeminded businesses to serve our coffee.

      If you're interested in serving this locally roasted Edinburgh coffee as your main offering, a guest appearance or as bags of retail, get in touch with us on roastery@machina-coffee.co.uk or call (0131) 656 9565.

    • Roasting Schedule

      Your coffee will be roasted within 1-16 days of purchase, with a shelf life of 6 weeks (optimum serving point at 12-36 days old). We recommend letting this coffee rest for at least 12 days before using, in order to release excess gas which can impact the flavour of your cup.

      If you would like your coffee fresh, please leave a note with your order and we will do our best to accommodate.
