It’s not just about where coffee grows but how high up it grows. Flavors become lighter and more complex the further from sea level a coffee grows, going from earthy to sweet to nutty citrus and chocolate to spiced wine and fruits.

Environment

Precipitation, temperature, and humidity have a lot of say in a coffee’s maturation, overall flavor, and quality. Many coffee-producing countries are either primed for growing success or use alternative methods to improve their ecosystem.

Processing

A coffee’s process describes how the seed (aka the coffee bean) is separated from the coffee cherry. Popular methods include washed, dry, and honey, but there are many other processes that put special emphasis on different aspects of these methods.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Harvest

May - Sept

Export

July - May

Brazil

Minas Gerais is the largest coffee-producing state of the 26 states that make up Brazil, accounting for almost half of the country’s total coffee. The landscape in Minas Gerais abounds with mountains and valleys, which give Brazilian coffees their wide-ranging flavor profiles. Consistent rainfall, high daytime temperatures, and dry winters make Minas Gerais ideal for coffee growing. Its rich, deep soil is known to the natives as Terra Rosa, or “pink earth” in Portuguese. Fresh Roasted Coffee is proud to source our Brazilian coffee from two regions within Minas Gerais: Sul de Minas and Cerrado de Minas.
