Cultivating Coffee For A Better Tomorrow

Jacu Bird Brand
Our Story

Our Coffee Starts with a Bird.

It’s the bird you see in our logo—the Jacu bird, native to Brazil. When coffee was introduced to Brazil in the 1700s, Jacu birds devoured it. And coffee farmers realized that the beans the birds had digested lost all their bitterness, making coffee from Jacu birds a precious commodity.

Sure, it might sound a little weird at first, but we admire a bird that takes only what it needs from its environment and gives back something even better.

    We work directly with farmers, cutting out middlemen so that farmers can pay their laborers higher wages and benefits.

  • We Grow Our Coffee With the Same Goal.

    We process our coffee with centuries-old methods—like the Samba Honey method, where you smash the cherries by foot to expose the honey of the coffee cherry. You then dry the beans in the sun, allowing the coffee cherry to ferment and grow in flavor complexity.
