MISSION 

“To be a premium Brazilian specialty coffee exporter with a global reputation for superior quality, sustainability, and innovation made possible through close partnerships, client focus, and consumer engagement.” 

VISION 

“Becoming a global leader of specialty coffee by guaranteeing the highest quality coffee, environmental stewardship, and corporate responsibility.” 

 
DARE TO DREAM!

Latitudes Brazilian Coffees  was born from a dream of its founder Edgard Bressani, bringing his well known signature and vision of the international coffee market.

 

His Marketing background and approach are unique! It is easy to recognize the projects he has created.

 

In July 2022, he invited Adriano Reis, Davi Giolo and Milton Augusto to join this journey. And in November 2022, Pedro Sepini joined the team. Augusto and Adriano have been working with Edgard for the past 15 years, and Davi and Pedro, for the past 10 years. So they were all invited to become Latitudes’ partners, a way Edgard found to thank his friends for the long journey together.

Socios Latitudes Brazilian Coffees

Latitudes is a coffee exporter focused on strengthening ties between Brazilian specialty coffee producers of Arabica and Canephora (Robustas from the Amazon) and international buyers, always guaranteeing excellence in every single detail.  

Edgard has always had an enormous desire to continue breaking paradigms and to show that to the world that in Brazil buyers can find coffees of the highest quality as in any other origin.

He has spent 20 years of his life traveling the world for over 180 days a year, meeting the main buyers of specialty coffees and understanding their preferences in terms of sensory profiles and coffees offered by coffee producers.

So many friendships brought many connections and today Latitudes promotes, besides Brazilian coffees, also some of the best specialty coffees from China and El Salvador.

Latitudes Brazilian Coffees invites you to embark on a journey. The journey of a small seed that became a plant — that generated another seed. It went through water, heat, the road, more heat, many blades, and more water. And behold, it shines, naturally sweet, intoxicating, all-encompassing.


Every coffee tells a story. It tells about nature, about many hands and affection. Other journeys. Knowing them brings us closer. Distances don't measure us. We are coordinates. We are a compass. We are global.


We stand side by side, approaching and treading new paths. We’re finding diversity along the way, subtleties and experiences.


It’s all about caring, strengthening, rediscovering. Rediscover Brazil, China and El Salvador, their wealth and their coffees. These continents of flavors. This universe of sensations. In your cup.
