Background Details

This coffee is produced by farmers belonging to cooperatives in the Cerrado region within the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Cerrado region, the newest of three major Brazilian growing regions, has been building in reputation and production over the last few decades.  Coffee in this region is grown on high plateaus at elevations peaking just over 1,000 meters above sea level.  The region also has relatively mild weather patterns providing a more predicable climate for processing coffee.  As the world's largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come from larger estates that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes.  Our current offering is Fine Cup (FC) and Strictly Soft (SS), the highest cup category in the Brazilian coffee grading.
