About

Dark Brazil Cerrado coffee is a bold and heavy bodied single origin with a traditional coffee flavor. This dark roast Brazilian bold coffee has a smooth drinkability with no burnt or lingering finish and possesses the nutty flavor profile found in all high quality Brazilian coffee beans.

This particular Brazil Cerrado coffee is grown in the Cerrado region of the Minas Gerais state, the largest coffee producing state in Brazil. High temperatures, rich mineralized soil and consistent rainy seasons make Brazil a prime location for pristine coffee crops.

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.

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.
