This Minas Gerais coffee from Brazil belongs to the “Región do Cerrado Mineiro”, known worldwide for being the origin of high-quality coffees and being the first designation of origin in Brazil. This region is synonymous with excellence for its temperate climate and fertile soils, and we cannot ignore respect for the environment and the monitoring of a program of sustainable production processes that guarantees the correct use of natural resources. The cup profile is exceptional and far exceeds what we are looking for in a Brazilian coffee. It is not a conventional coffee, it stands out in most of its attributes and we can speak of complexity both in its aroma and flavor. Brazil is the most influential and economically most powerful country in South America and one of the largest economies in the world. Great strides have been made in recent years to lift millions of people out of poverty across the country. Coffee was introduced in Brazil in 1720 in the southern state of Paraná and has become the power of the coffee world, representing more than a third of all coffee produced. Legend has it that at that time the Brazilian government wanted a reduction in world coffee production and sent Lieutenant Colonel. Francisco de Melo Palheta to French Guiana under the pretext of mediating a border dispute. Aware that he would not be allowed to visit the fortress-type coffee plantations, the lieutenant used his charms to woo the First Lady of Guyana and encouraged her to give him the seedlings he also desired. Unable to resist his charms, she presented him with a bouquet of coffee beans at a farewell banquet held in his honor. It cannot be proven whether sex and deception are really behind Brazil's introduction to coffee, but there is no doubt that Brazil's dominance of world production is now unrivaled in the 21st century. Annual crops of up to 60 million bags are becoming commonplace. Coffee plantations cover around 10,000 square miles of the country and of the estimated 6 billion trees, 74% are arabica and 26% robust. The state of Minas Gerais of the largest producers due to adequate landscapes, climate and rich soils. About 50% of all coffee in the world is produced in Brazil, almost 3.6 million metric tons annually. With so much coffee produced in one country, it is not surprising that there is a wide range of qualities produced there. Brazil produces everything from natural Robusta to standard, neutral and smooth Santos 17/18 coffees and the distinctive Rio Minas 17/18. In recent years, Brazilian producers have also started to invest more in specialty coffee production. Brazil coffees add soft, sweet and sometimes floral coffees to the specialty spectrum. In addition to being the largest coffee producer, Brazil also occupies a prominent position among the main coffee consuming countries in the world. At number 14, Brazil consumes the largest amount of coffee of all coffees in South and Central America and is the second after Canada in all the Americas. Brazil country FINCA: Pantano I, Vitoria and Congonhas REGION: Minas Gerais ALTITUDE: 950 meters PROCESS: Natural TYPOLOGY: Specialty SCA: 83.75 Coffee is a very delicate product. Upon contact with air it oxidizes and begins to lose its organoleptic properties; For this reason we give you some tips to keep it better: - Open the bag by the easy opening of the zip / zipper. Never above. Once you have inserted the coffee beans into the compartment of the super automatic coffee bean machine, carefully close the zip again. - Put the necessary amount of coffee for up to two days. The coffee keeps better in the bag with the zip closed than in the compartment or hopper of the coffee maker. - In the case of not having our super-automatic coffee machines, grind the coffee that you are going to use. Once the coffee is ground, the oxidation process multiplies by fifteen. That means it will lose its flavor and aroma much faster. - If you can, once you have opened the bag, store the coffee in a container with a hermetic seal or with a vacuum seal so that it has the minimum contact with air and minimizes the oxidation process. In our accessories section you will find products specially designed for it. - Never store coffee in the fridge. That will make the humidity of the coffee vary and that will also vary its organoleptic characteristics. In addition, coffee easily absorbs the aromas that surround you, we do not want our coffee to have unknown aromas or flavors ... - Never let the sun touch you. In short, store it in a cool and dry place, without sunlight and that does not touch the air.
