NASAA Organic Certified,
Brazil produces about a third of the world’s coffee. In 2015 this amounted to 36.+ million 60kg bags. So its easy to believe that Brazil’s domestic output and market activity have a significant impact on the global coffee trade. Hence, a drought in Brazil, for example, will result in higher coffee prices around the world.
Brazilian coffee often has full body, a relatively low acidity, and a strong sweetness in the form of caramel and chocolate notes.
Brazil’s coffee production is an eclectic mix, coming from fourteen significant coffee-producing regions scattered over seven states. They include small family plantations with less than 10 hectares to large estates with more than 2000 hectares.
So many coffee-producing regions mean that you can find a variety of traditional and cutting-edge coffees being grown. These include Bourbon, Mundo Novo, Icat, Catua, Iapar, Catuca, and more.
