Brazil Varietal and Region Information

     Brazil is one of the most well-known coffee origins and is the largest producer and exporter in the world. It is responsible for almost a third of all consumed coffee on the planet. While Brazil has several premiere regions to cultivate coffee, much of the coffee is grown in the Minas Gerais region in southern Brazil whose rich soil and climate makes a fantastic environment for cultivation. Coffee from Brazil is universally enjoyed due to its lower acidity.



     The Cerrado is a vast tropical savanna ecoregion of Brazil, particularly in the states of Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul, Mato Grosso, Tocantins, Minas Gerais and the Federal District. It is also the first region in Brazil to receive protected Designation of Origin status, meaning coffee labelled “Cerrado” has to actually come from Cerrado (similar to the rules protecting Spanish ham or Champagne).

     This selected coffee is from Fazenda Santa just southwest of Brasilia in the state of Goiás

and is smooth and well rounded. It has low acidity, a medium body with notes of chocolate and caramel.
