Brazil Cerrado 17/18 Natural 2022
Richly nut-toned, the nose leads with baking chocolate, almond butter, nutmeg and carnation. On the palate, crisp fruit and nut tones. Easy-going, gentle acidity, viscous, velvety mouthfeel. The finish is quiet, sweet and nutty.
The Cerrado Region
Cerrado is a relatively new region for coffee production. Located in the northwest of Minas Gerais state, Cerrado is a large plateau where the predominant topography is flat to slightly wavy. The altitude varies from 900 to 1250 meters above sea level.
The combination of well-defined seasons, abundant sunlight throughout the year, advanced farming techniques and entrepreneurial spirit forged the pillars that sustain Cerrado as we know it today.
Cerrado is also one of the most biodiverse and complex regions on earth. The area is home to roughly 5% of all species on earth.
There’s a 1-in-3 chance the coffee in your cup is from Brazil. It’s a huge country with a staggering coffee export — over 33% percent of the world’s coffee supply comes out of Brazil — and that doesn’t include the coffee they keep to drink themselves. Brazil has been at the top of the coffee export chain since the early 1800s when coffee farming overtook sugarcane as a cash crop. Read the Brazil Green Coffee Origin Report
