From dream to reality.

Our idea was born many years prior to it's release date, and even though life has thrown one too many curveballs the idea never died, when the "it's now or never moment" arrived, no matter how complicated things got, we managed to make it happen.

KAUANE, THE COMPANY:

The company was created out of the need of finding a Brazilian coffee outside of Brazil that tasted just like the one I had at my grandma’s and my mom’s while I was growing up during the 80's.

After a long search we found the best of the best in the mountainous region of the state of Espírito Santo. We were able to find a champion in the Specialty Coffee category, which in our opinion was like striking gold, hidden in a rural area not even found on Google maps. So KAUANE LLC was born.

Are we a Fair Trade company? Yes! We pay 3 times the minimum amount required for certification, though we are not certified yet.

Is Kauane Coffee organic? Yes, we are uncertified organic. The rural community where our coffee comes from is very small and our goal is to get the entire rural region certified, we carefully studied the idea of certifying one small farm at a time but it may have bad economic consequences for other local farms while they wait for each process to be completed, so we are gathering resources to organize as a rural community to make it happen.

The idea of bringing coffee straight from the farm goes against the standard procedure of most coffee companies, which is to buy coffee from the distributor with green coffee beans stored in local warehouses. Large coffee companies usually mix coffee from different countries to dilute the cost, causing it to have a completely different taste from the one I had been missing.

Kauane brings to you one of the biggest treasures Brazil has to offer, an award-winning coffee considered one of the best coffees in Brazil under our roaster specialist's name.

Our coffee is harvested by hand, the best beans are screened and selected also by hand, then hand roasted and packaged in the same place to guarantee the authentic Brazilian coffee flavor and aroma we are committed to bringing to you.

Taste Authentic Brazilian High Quality coffee

The pyramid represents the quality grades of coffee from low grade at the bottom to the highest grade on top. We are proud of our 85 points on the American Specialty Coffee Association Scale.

Hand Picked

Only the ripe cherries are picked, leaving the green cherries on the branch to make sure the end product is consistent, and to maintain high quality and sustainability.

Hand Roasted

Our coffee is selected by hand to ensure all beans are the same size, and to remove impurities. After the selection process the coffee is roasted by hand and packaged in the same place to ensure the authentic taste of Brazilian coffee.

KAUANE, THE NAME:

Kauane is the feminine variant of Kauã (Cauã, Cauan, Kauan) which in Tupí-Guaraní, the combination of two of many native languages in South America, it is used to describe birds of prey, and in most cases, a Harpy Eagle known in Brazil as King-Hawk or Royal Hawk due to it's crest resembling a crown. The name Kauã/Cauã was adopted in Brazil as a male name, being Kauane the female form.

The interesting thing about the name Kauã/Cauã in Tupí-Guaraní, is that it does not imply gender, just like the word hawk in Portuguese, although the term King-Hawk does imply gender due to the word king, the female is not Queen-Hawk, it's Female King-Hawk, and that's why the name Kaunane fits perfectly to describe the female bird of prey without the use of a masculine substantive.

Although the name sounds Hawaiian, the word is an entire adaptation between Tupí-Guaraní and Portuguese, so it won’t get any more Brazilian than that, just like the taste of our coffee.
