    Fun Fact
    Dune’s Kay Cheon brought milk from California to Seattle’s United States Barista Championship – must have been worth it, because he came in third.

    Roaster’s Notes
    Robson Vilela purchased Fazenda Alta Vista, an 84-hectare property in 2001. His first harvest wasn’t until in 2007, where his crop took 7th place in the 2007 Brazil Cup of Excellence. Alta Vista has since delivered on the reputation of quality, returning to the Cup of Excellence finals in 2011 and 2012. This year we purchased his coffee in the Best of Carmo auction where his coffee placed 4th. The staff at Fazenda Alta Vista is much smaller than other farms in the region. Robson made an agreement to pay higher wages than other farms in the area, resulting in zero staff turnover. Fazenda Alta vista also produces bananas and macadamia nuts, which are intercropped with the coffee trees providing sufficient shade and wind protection. At Dune Coffee Roasters, we believe specialty coffee is for everyone, and we roast coffee to be accessible approachable and fun. Sourcing and roasting delicious coffee is our privilege and we are grateful to share them with you.
