Background Details

Brazil Santos 17/18 SS FC coffee is sourced from the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Santos is a residual reference to the days before deregulation of the Brazilian coffee trade. Then, the term Santos referred to the best grade of coffee exported from Brazil through the port city of Santos. 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.
