  • “Certified "Cafe Do Brasil" is something you don't see ANYWHERE in the United States.  I've had the best coffee Brasil has to offer. These guys hit the mark. So when you own/work with the farmers/families directly and roast beans so well and perfectly that you could do it in your sleep, no wonder the result is rich, inviting and exquisite coffee. Recently discovered this at Schnuck's Markets in St. Louis. I don't want to buy my espresso beans from anyone else anymore.  If you like Cafe Intelligentsia and those of that ilk (high-end, boutique roasters), this is as good or better, and certainly takes the crown for Brazilian coffee sold in the U.S. Give them a try and you won't sip anyone's coffee again... promise.” – David and Michelle Rak
  • “This is great coffee. If you don’t drink “espresso,” don’t worry. It’s just regular coffee which could be brewed as espresso if you wanted. After our first order of 2 bags was gone, we liked it so much we ordered 5 more. Delivery is fast and if you get the chance to talk coffee with Bruno, you’ll see that he knows his stuff. Obrigado, amigo!” – David Wiant
  • “This coffee has an incredible flavor! I am from Brazil and I decided to try Minas Expresso and I love it so much! From the first sip I could already tell that it tastes so much better then American coffee. I am not a coffee expert but I can definitely taste the caramel and chocolate notes. This coffee tastes amazing black, with creamer, with milk or sweetener. Though if you’re looking for a true Brazilian coffee experience, you should try it with one or two teaspoons of sugar. It enhances the deliciousness of this amazing coffee. It is a little pricy but it is totally worth it because of its quality! I’m almost done with mine and I want to buy more already!” – Fernanda Martimbianco
  • "I bought two flavors of Minas and love them both. Generally I use pre-ground during the week and grind whole beans on the weekend when I have more time, but this is so good that I've been putting that extra effort in more often and may drop the preground when it runs out. "- Jeremy Colton
  • “Hi! I bought both the medium roast and the espresso. I LOVE them both! I put a lot of sweetener and cream in my coffee and the espresso roast really stood up to it. Both roasts are fantastic. Thanks, Bruno!” - Marti Weiland
  • “I had the pleasure of meeting Bruno yesterday when I visited his business in Edwardsville. He made an amazing cup of coffee and a cup of espresso that was so smooth and full of flavor I did not have to dowse in sugar, which is what I normally have to do to cut the bitterness of other brands. I took a sample home, wondering if I would be able to replicate, at home, the amazing flavor he had created. I was very pleasantly surprised, following his instructions for my little Mr. Coffee maker, when I produced 4 cups of awesomeness. Thank you so much for the conversation, coffee instruction and cultural education. See you soon!” - Anne Cherie Schroeder
  • “I’m a single source coffee snob....I’ve singled out Brazilian beans as my favorite. I’m so glad I was introduced to Minas by my friend, Craig. It’s not just that these are the right beans grown in the right place....Minas roasting expertise is the unique artistry that makes for this excellent cup with an unbeatable flavor profile: creamy, smooth with subtle caramel notes.” – Neil Munhofen

  • “A great cup of coffee! Noticeably better than the rest!” - William Cerny

  • "This is legit coffee!!" – SIUE Police Department

  • "I was blessed with an opportunity to taste Minas Espresso and receive a “Coffee University” tutoring session from the master himself, Bruno Nobre. Uh...WOW!!! This is some top-tier coffee. And Bruno has a philanthropic heart as well. What a win!!!!" – Scott Ragain
  • "Loved the Benedito Espresso!! Highly recommended!" – Dan Stamborski
  • "This coffee is incredible. I highly recommend. We ran out in a week! I was so impressed." – Allison Cheney
  • "Great coffee and great people! Both roasts were awesome!" – Mark McRae
  • "Amazing coffee! I love how it’s rich but not bitter. Smells so good! My favorite is the Benedito Espresso which makes me love it even more after learning the story behind the name. Wonderful people putting a lot of love in this coffee." – Joice Cypriano
  • "We love it! It's rare we find a coffee we both love. This coffee has a wonderful smooth feel, and no after taste. Highly recommend." – Ashley Danley Rawson
