It goes without saying that you need a naturally processed Brazilian on your menu. Move over Eagle Mogiana and welcome Telma Machado. From the Cerrado region of Brazil, Telma was recently widowed and pressed on in managing their farm on her own. Her interest in agriculture came from the tradition of her husband’s family. Before coffee, they had a grain farm and decided to shift into coffee. They planted seedlings and their own nursery kicked into gear. Nurseries often turn into farms, and that’s exactly what happened with Telma’s 26 acres.
In 2016 Root and Branch opened its doors on a humble Belfast back street to become Belfast’s first specialty micro-roastery. They only work with farmers and green coffee importers they believe in, bringing sustainable and delicious coffees that everyone loves.
