Ouro Verde Farm is located in Chapada Diamantina, in the city of Piatã, Bahia. It is the highest city in the Northeast of Brazil, sitting at around 1200 masl. The high elevation makes for the slow ripening of the Catuai Varieties grown on the farm, and the attention to detail when pulping and drying the coffee makes for excellent shelf life. We've continuously been impressed with the ever-improving quality shown over the seven years of direct trade with Familia Rigno. Their tireless dedication is again on display with this year's Ouro Verde joining our espresso menu.
'Ouro Verde' translates to 'Green Gold' in Portuguese, so it's fitting that Seven Seeds has such a long-standing relationship with the Rigno family. 2022 will be the 7th year we've featured coffee from Ouro Verde farm in some way, shape, or form here in Australia.
All coffee from Ouro Verde Farm is picked by hand and lovingly processed using the Pulped Natural method. The harvest in 2021/22 was difficult—unprecedented weather events made for late pickings, low yields, & high market prices. Logistical issues during COVID further complicated things. But, when times get tough, we get tougher, and together we prevail.
We roast three days a week; Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The cut off time to be included in the day's roast is 7:30 AM (AEST) that morning. We dispatch the business day after the coffee is roasted. So if your coffee is roasted on Monday, our freight carriers will pick it up from us on Tuesday.
We are closed on public holidays and weekends; our roast and dispatch schedule will shift to the next business day.
FREE STANDARD SHIPPING FOR ORDERS OVER $120* *AU ONLY, EXCLUDES WA & NT

We've continuously been impressed with the ever-improving quality shown over the seven years of direct trade with Familia Rigno. Their tireless dedication is on display again with the Ouro Verde's release.
