BRAZILIAN COFFEE

Brazil has been the world’s largest coffee exporter for more than 150 years. Brazilian coffee accounts for about 33% of the global market. The plantations, with a total area of 27,000 km2, are mainly located in the southeastern states of Minas Gerais, Sao Paulo, Paraná. The country has a mild climate, there are many sunny days in the year, and it often rains – these are ideal conditions for coffee trees.

Classic Brazilian coffee has a sweet taste with caramel, nutty and chocolate notes, almost no sourness, full body, smooth velvety texture. Of course, a lot depends on the manufacturer, but most coffee brands have begun to pay more attention to quality, removing the emphasis from quantity. And this is very important now .

There are no high-altitude areas in Brazil, so coffee grows on plantations, the taste of which is soft and strong. It is generally believed that the higher the fruits grow, the richer their taste, but despite this opinion, Brazil does not give up its leadership in the production of coffee beans. The advantage of Brazilian coffee is the absence of sourness, which not everyone likes, thanks to the growing area. In this country, in most cases, the dry method of harvesting is used, leaving the grains to dry in the open air for several weeks. Dry grains turn brown. Then the peeling procedure takes place. Then they are sieved through several sieves of different diameters, distributing the grains by size. A small number of grains are processed in a wet way, which significantly increases the cost of finished coffee beans.

Brazilian coffee is mainly produced in 6 regions: Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, São Paulo, Bahia, Rondônia, Paraná. In 2011, Brazil led the four leaders in the production of green (not roasted) coffee (followed by Vietnam, Indonesia and Colombia). The state is also a major exporter of Arabica and instant coffee.

As for the types, Brazilian coffee varies by:

region of origin;
varieties (Bourbon, Mundo Novo, Icatú, Catuaí, Iapar, Catucaí, etc., these are all varieties of Arabica);
the size and color of coffee beans;
cupping (characteristics of taste and smell).
Well-known brands: Volcanica Coffee, Ferris Coffee, Fresh Roasted Coffee (do not let the name of the company mislead you, in fact it is not green roasted coffee).
