About Brazil Cerrado Pulped Natural

The coffee produced in Cerrado Mineiro results from a terroir influenced by the unique characteristics of the region, which has a perfect definition of climatic seasons, with hot and humid summer and mild and dry winter. Soil, climate, planted varieties and cropping systems confer unique identity to Cerrado Mineiro coffee.

With an altitude between 800m to 1,250m, temperature between 18 ° C and 23 ° C and rainfall of 1,600mm per year, the region is frost-free. Its flat topography favours the mechanization of the crops, whose main differentials are the intense flowering and the uniform maturation of the grains, which allows concentrated harvesting.

The intense aromas, with notes ranging from caramel to nuts, delicately citric acidity, moderated to full-bodied and long-lasting chocolate flavour, are the characteristics of the coffee produced in the region.

About Brazil

Coffee was bought to Brazil in 1727 from French Guiana, by Captain- Lieutenant Francisco de Melo Palheta. Legend has it, that Francisco de Mello charmed the French governor’s wife and she buried coffee seeds in a bouquet of flowers and that is how the cultivation of coffee began.

Today, Brazil is the world’s largest coffee producer and is becoming a major player in the specialty coffee industry.

Coffee farms in Brazil are run as small estates, called ‘Fazendas de Cafe’. The vast majority of coffee farms are found in the regions of Paraná, Espirito Santos, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, and Bahia. Each of these growing regions, produce their own distinct coffees.

Brazil produces many varieties of coffee known as, Bourbon, Typica, Caturra, and Mundo Novo, and about 80% of coffee produced is Arabica. Coffee in Brazil is processed by the wet (washed), dry (natural), and semi-washed (pulped natural) methods.
