About one-third of all of the world’s coffee is grown in Brazil, and much of Brazil’s premium coffee is labeled Santos after the port it is shipped through. Brazil is the largest exporter in the world, supplying approximately 60% of the world’s coffee – this is due in part to the sheer size of the country.
Many high-quality espresso blends are made from either Bourbon Santos or Brazil Cerrado due to the ability of Brazilian coffees to take dark roasts without turning overly bitter. This is due in part to the mild, balance flavor of Brazilian coffee beans.
Typical flavoring from Brazil on the commercial grades invokes nuts, caramel and creamy body, but new producers are developing new techniques, with sweetness, citrus and acidity from these coffees.
