An excellent, specialty-grade coffee from Brazil will delight you.
Coffee came to Brazil from French Guiana in 1727, when a colonel was tasked to take a coffee plant. By the 1840s, Brazil had become the world's biggest producer and exporter of coffee and since the 19th century, Brazil has controlled the global coffee market.
Brazil produces just about 40% of all coffee consumed worldwide from natural Robusta to the neutral and mild Santos screen 17/18. Brazilian farmers have also begun to spend more extensively in specialty coffee production, from macrolot to microlot, in recent years.
Espirito Santo, So Paulo, Minas Gerais, and Bahia are the most productive coffee-growing regions in Brazil. The majority of Brazilian coffee is grown on vast farms that are designed and equipped to maximize yield. Because of the high minimum salaries and flat terrain, most farms have chosen machine harvesting over hand-picking.
The majority of green coffee in Brazil is natural processed. The greatest Brazilian coffees are low in acidity and have a nutty sweet flavor that is often bittersweet with a chocolaty roast flavor.
Brazil Cascavel Verde Pulp Natural coffee is a specialty grade coffee beans from various regions in Brazil. On the Portuguese side, Cascavel Verde means "green rattlesnake." Rattlesnakes have a negative rep, yet they are crucial to the coffee ecology for they eat rodents and other small animals and keep them out of the coffee plantations.
This coffee is pulped natural processed and grows at an altitude of 800 to 1,110 masl with coffee grade NY2 Scr. 16+. The pulped natural process involves pulping coffee and laying it out to dry on patios. The coffee is then raked and turned on a regular basis to guarantee equal drying and a clean cup profile.
NY2 grade is a designation that assures us that there are no more than 6 visible defects in a 300-gram sample. In most cups, this small number of flaws goes unnoticed, ensuring a constant and pleasant flavor.
This coffee is also 16/17 screened. Beans are separated by size using screens. The process of size separation is an important part of the dry milling process. The screens of a screen grading machine are layered on top of each other. Green coffee is fed into the machine, and as the screens shake, beans smaller than the openings on one screen fall through to a lower screen, eventually reaching a screen with holes too small for them to fit.
Beans with a size of 6.75 millimeters to 7 millimeters are kept on screens 16 and 17 (the size of 18 screens). The holes in 16 screens keep beans larger than 6.5 millimeters out.
