Vinhal Estate

Vinhal Estate

Tasting Notes: Balanced, cocoa & nutty

We source our Vinhal Estate direct from Rafael Vinhal and his family estate in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. As the family business has grown it has achieved Rainforest Alliance certification, as well as being an award-winning member of the BSCA - Brazil Specialty Coffee Association.

We medium roast, creating a profile which maintains the coffee's balance and works well across all brew methods. There are no big surprises in this coffee but it's full of flavour, with low acidity, a little sweetness, medium body and a nutty character.

The Vinhal farms are in the heart of Minas Gerais state, in the Cerrado region. They cover an area of 200 hectares, with 850,000 coffee trees, at altitudes of 980 MASL (relatively low for speciality coffee) all the way up to 2500 MASL. The region has a warm climate, with dry summers and rainy winters. This results in sweet coffees, usually Catuaí, with low acidity and a full body.


In 1988 Mr Zico Vinhal literally planted with his own hands the first seeds of the family’s business. Continued by his son, Afonso, seen here, with his wife Marcelia and their son Rafael, this is truly a family business.


This coffee cherries are mechanically harvested as the terrain allows it and the ripening of the fruit is fairly consistent in these conditions. Unripe cherries/under-developed beans (floaters) are removed before being laid out to dry on patios; the natural method. Once the desired moisture content has been reached the cherries will be hulled to remove both the dried fruit and the parchment layer. The resulting green coffee will have more body and sweetness.

Our everyday brew!

We've been ordering this coffee since 2019 and love it for our morning cup of coffee, which we brew with a Chemex. It's well-balanced and makes a really delightful coffee that tastes great.

This is the first HorseBox coffee I have ordered. I make it as a long drink, black, a well heaped desert spoon per cup in a cafetière. It's not strong but is a really good flavour. It's now delivered on subscription.


Nice,smooth, easy drinking coffee, can definitely taste the milk chocolate notes. Never going to be a complex coffee but a good everyday coffee.
