Coffee Background

As the world's largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come in larger sizes with regional names. Minas Gerais is the largest of the three major Brazilian growing regions with six micro-regions, which account for 50 percent of Brazil’s production.  The region has relatively mild weather patterns providing a more predictable climate for processing coffee. Lots frequently come from large suppliers that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes. When the coffee is milled for export, the green beans are sorted by screen size and graded according to size and then cupped for quality.  Our current offering is 17/18 bean size, Fine Cup (FC) and Strictly Soft (SS), the highest cup category in the Brazilian coffee grading.
