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.
