Short information about coffee in Brazil
In Brazil, coffee was introduced in the XVIIth century and since 1840 the country has been among the leading coffee producers and exporters in the world. There are nearly 300 000 coffee plantations, most of which are located in 13 states with the most popular regions of Bahia, Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais, Paraná and São Paulo. The average altitude of the farms is approx. 1100 m.a.s.l. so most of the local beans are not dense and classified as High Grown Coffee. However, relatively low altitudes are compensated by the perfect climate conditions ranging from tropical to temperate: stable, hot and humid; and rich soils. The harvest period lasts from May to August.
Common varieties cultivated in Brazil include Bourbon, Typica, Caturra, Catuai, Acaia, Mundo Novo, Obatã and Icatu with the last four being introduced here.
Brazilian coffee beans are famous for the chocolate-nutty profile with low acidity, heavy body and constant quality from year to year.
