WHY THESE NAMES?
Thera is an homage to the most admired volcano in the ancient Greco-Roman civilization. The remarkable body of this coffee echoes the powerfull volcanic activities of yore, leaving a key impact in the ancient culture, related with several mystical stories including the legendary civilization of Atlantis. Thera is the original name of the actual Santorini, today a volcanic caldera in the Aegean sea.
St. Domingos is an homage to the Poços de Caldas volcano. Saint Domingos was a saint with high relevancy in the catholic culture - very embbeded in Brazilian culture and in particular in this region - being responsible for expanding frontiers by the preaching of the holy rosary. A great structured coffee with a delicate personality that allow us to give to coffee lovers worldwide the divine sweetness of our terroir.
Adrano is an homage to the 'God of Fire' in the Greco-Roman mythology. This name was used by the time of that ancient civilization to nominate a land in the foot of Mountain Etna, rich for the culture of citrus fruit, a very peculiar flavour of this specialty coffee. That land becomes later a comune, carrying with it the name Adrano.
