This is a rare natural process Brazil bean, offering a smooth and dense body....and tasting notes of red fruits, honey, caramel, and brown sugar. This is another small farm bean that we have sourced that has a high rating (88). This is truly delicious. Cheers!
One of every three cups of coffee consumed in the world is Brazilian. So it’s no surprise as the producer of a third of the world’s coffee that Brazil is also its number 1 exporter.
About 90% of those exports are high-quality Arabica. Brazilian Arabica is found in many of the world’s favorite espresso blends as it has a mild and balanced flavor.
Brazil’s coffee-making regions are very diverse with different levels of altitudes, plant varieties, and production systems. Some are in high-altitude, mountainous regions where coffee needs to be handpicked; others grow on flat farms where labor can be mechanized.
Much like wine varieties differ greatly based on the local terroir and climate, each coffee from every different region of Brazil has a specific taste, body, acidity, and sweetness. Five Brazilian coffee regions have received protected Geographical Indication (GI) status that designates their characteristics unique to their origin. These are:
- Cerrado Mineiro
- Região de Pinhal
- Alta Mogiana
- Norte Pioneiro do Paraná
- Serra da Mantiqueira de Minas Gerais
