Brazilian Cerrado

We just received a new coffee varietal from Brazil and we love it! It is from the Cerrado region in the center of Brazil, which is approximately the size of Alaska. The Cerrado (“say-hah-doe”) has the most extensive tropical woodland-savanna in all of South America and has a pronounced dry season. It is best known for its beef cattle production and great coffee beans.

The coffee the Cerrado region yields is rich and sweet, with chocolate notes and a long finish. It has a medium body and the acidity is slightly citric. This coffee’s aroma is intense with notes of caramel and nuts. We have found that a medium roast works best with this bean. The Brazilian Cerrado is a must try!
