About the Coffee
Peixoto (pronounced: pay-SHOW-tow) is our family name, and the name under which we have grown our high quality, specialty-grade Aribica coffee for at least the last 120 years.
BuzzyBakes is proud to offer exceptional coffee service and hot chocolate for your event. We exclusively carry the best Brazilian coffee on the market – Peixoto Coffee. Peixoto is a family owned coffee plantation founded in 1894 and nestled in the highlands of the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil at an altitude of 4200 feet. This is where you’ll find Fazenda São José da Boa Vista, the name bestowed upon the Peixoto family coffee farm. Fazenda São José da Boa Vista literally means “Saint José’s Farm of Good View”….. which is a bit of an understatement as the view from the farm is nothing short of spectacular.

In 2015, BuzzyBakes chose Peixoto as our exclusive coffee supplier. Relying on a sustainable crop to cup coffee family, BuzzyBakes is the only vendor in North Carolina to offer this exceptional product. Coffee beans are roasted in Chandler, Arizona at the flagship Peixoto Coffee House.
Single origin – Catuai/Catucai – Natural. This bean produces a smooth, complex brew with notes of Hazelnut, Honey, and Berries.
Ricardo Tavares – Chapadas de Minas – Swiss water process decaffeinated. This blend produces a rich, non-acidic brew with notes of Chocolate, Caramel, and Citrus.
Cascara, the sun-dried fruit of the coffee cherry makes a delightfully floral and naturally sweetened tea. While tea made from cascara doesn’t taste anything like roasted coffee, earthly flavor notes of raisins and honey abound. Cascara makes a unique and enjoyable beverage whether served hot or iced.
