ABOUT THE COFFEE PRODUCTION
In the natural process of coffee production, the entire coffee cherry is left intact during the fermentation process. This means that the skin, pulp, and mucilage surrounding the coffee bean are not removed. The cherries are spread out on raised beds or patios and regularly turned to ensure even drying while preventing spoilage. This method allows the sugars and flavors from the fruit to infuse into the beans during the drying process, resulting in a coffee with a distinctively fruity and full-bodied flavor profile. The natural process is favored in regions where water is scarce or where the climate is suitable for sun-drying the coffee cherries.
The Cerrado Mineiro coffee growing region is the second largest coffee producing area in Brazil, covering an expansive 2,300,259 square kilometers and home to around 2.3 million residents living in the coffee-producing districts. Within this region, over 4,500 producers cultivate approximately 219,449 hectares of coffee. The most commonly grown coffee varietals in this area include Bourbon, Mundo Novo, and Catuai, with Arabica species accounting for 99.9% of the total coffee production.
Brazil has been the world's largest coffee producer for over 150 years. The country's favorable climate and vast land area have contributed to its prominence in the global coffee market.
Coffee is deeply ingrained in Brazilian culture, and the country has a strong tradition of coffee consumption. Brazil is also known for its vibrant coffee culture, with numerous coffee shops, cafes, and a growing specialty coffee scene in cities like São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
