Our Special Coffee History
The Special Coffee
Excellent quality coffee, grown and fermented to a substantially higher level than normal, is Special Coffee. Erna Knutsen coined the term in a 1974 edition of the Tea & Coffee Trade Journal. Specialty coffee is rich in antioxidants and nutrients that will help the consumer live a healthier life. Price, suitability and proper fermentation techniques are some of the positive factors that favor the demand for specialty coffees. This Coffee has several benefits such as it improves energy levels, helps to burn fat, improves physical performance, combats depression and is a good source of antioxidants. It is used for its energizing and healing properties.
We are a company that was born with the purpose of bringing unique experiences and collecting unforgettable moments to the universe of Specialty Coffee, from its plantation to the wonderful sensation of tasting an ultra-rare coffee that Brazil produces. Bringing with it credibility, responsibility, sustainability and Fair Trade.
The idea came from three adventurers who love special and rare coffees. And after a lot of study, effort and coffee, of course! The solid construction, affectionately identified by ALPIN CLUB CAFÉ, emerged. The objective is to bring all the experience of the Specialty Coffee culture to our subscribers, through the awareness of our Rural Producers, who make their living from family farming for the development of sustainable activities. Thus, adding qualitative values and linked to the socio-environmental indicatives of the SDG*.
