More: Brazil is one of the largest producers of coffee in the world and one of the earliest producers of coffee in South America. The first coffee plants in Brazil were brought over in the early 18th century. By 1920, they were supplying almost 80% of the world with coffee.
Brazil coffees have a very traditional profile: rich chocolate flavors, sweet nutty flavors, and subtle fruit qualities. You could very easily describe it like a Reese’s Cup-style coffee if you’ve got a sweet tooth like us.
This offering hails from the Mogiana area of Brazil, considered the most renowned of the three major Brazilian growing regions. Small to medium-size farms are common here, nestled among rolling hills and uneven terrain.
