The beans we roast known as Brazil Cerrado come from the low-lying plains or savannah in central Brazil. This region is the second to the Amazonia as the country’s largest land area. The arabica coffee grown in the Cerrado is unique on two counts: the altitude and the hardness of the bean. Due to the topography the coffee is grown at elevations between 600 and 1,500 feet, far lower than the typical 4,000 to 5,000 foot elevation. Atypical of Latin coffees, the Cerrado bean is a soft bean that matures faster and produces a different flavor profile than the more traditional hard beans. Thus, the Cerrado takes a slightly darker roast than other Latin coffees bringing out an exceptional nutty note while enhancing the body of the coffee. On the low-end of the acidity scale, this coffee is full-bodied yet clean with a walnut finish, tasting of sweetened milk chocolate and raw sugar.
