The world’s biggest producer

This country produces the world’s largest amount of coffee every year, and this is only a fraction of what they have to offer. Brazil isa major producer of coffee beans, so the production and international market behaviour affects not only Brazil but all other nations as well. A drought inBrazil can lead to higher prices for coffees across the world due to lack of supply. There's more to Brazil than just low-quality coffee beans.

Flavour profile

Brazilians are masters at making espresso blends and single origins. It's not uncommon for Brazil to produce specialty-grade coffees, which can be distinguished by intense sweetness in the form of caramel or chocolate notes with big bodies, less acidity than other coffees from around the world. 

Most Brazilian coffee has natural or pulped-natural process meaning that after being picked from its cherry state they are then dried as is without removing skin or mucilage which can be quite difficult because of how delicate these parts make them easy to damage during drying however not only does it add some extra flavour complexity such as roasting length will also vary due to their low water content giving you more depth than what traditional washed processes do.

Growing regions

Although there are many different types of beans in Brazil, they all come from fourteen major coffee-producing regions spanning over seven states. Some traditional varieties include Bourbon and Mundo Novo; while experimental ones like ʺIapar’ or ‘Catucaí’ also abound on this vast continent.There is a wide range of farms as well ranging anywhere between family plantations with 10 hectares to estates that have more than 2000 hectares at their disposal!
