History Of Brazilian Coffee:
Coffee is believed to have arrived in Brazil in 1727. From French Guiana via Portuguese Lt. Col Francisco del Melo Palheta. As the story goes, he seduced the Guianese’s governor’s wife to acquire her help smuggling the seeds. Across the border apparently it worked.
However, as demand grew in Europe and the United States. Exports started ramping up. And by 1820 Brazil was producing 30% of the world’s coffee.
Around the mid to late-1800’s, disease devastated the coffee industries of Asia. Giving Central and South America the chance it needed to really thrive as a coffee region. In the 1910’s, Brazil was growing 80% of the world’s coffee.
Facts About Coffee Growing Process:
One of the interesting contributions of Brazilian research. To the world of coffee is a variety of new plant varieties. Some hybrid-mutants, some cultivated in a lab designed for specific climate conditions. Caturra, Maragogype, and Mundo Novo are just a few of these new varieties. That are now being grown all over the world.
Another innovation is the “pulp natural” processing method. These coffees are pulped but allowed to dry with the fruity mucilage still attached to the bean, skipping the usual fermentation step. This results in a crisp acidity like a washed processed coffee, but also a heavy body and sweetness like a natural processed coffee.
This is a great middle-ground between the two methods when it comes to flavor.
Brazil’s diverse geography means there’s also a lot of diversity in coffee flavor. Robusta beans grown in the grasslands tend to be fairly unremarkable. With mild earthy notes and an unpleasant bitterness.
As you rise in elevation, you begin to see arabica coffee with more delicate flavors and sweetness. Also, the coffees with floral and fruity notes, and coffees with complex flavors that don’t resemble the typical Brazilian bean at all.
In specialty coffee, we see a couple different flavor profiles of Brazilian coffees. The more common is the earthy, spicy, nutty, sweet. And low-acidity bean that makes for a great blend foundation.
However, there are many Brazilian beans worthy of being single origins as well. These often have a lighter body, a juicy sweetness. Along with a gentle acidic tang. And a complex flavor profile with notes of lime, white wine, flowers, and spice.
What Makes Them So Popular?
1) Lower Acidity
Having a coffee that has high acidity is not a good thing, at least, not according to the taste buds. When it’s grown in the lower altitudes like it is in Brazil, the coffee will then have low acidity. Because of all of this, the coffee beans will be sweet, round and will provide an excellent taste.
2) Different Harvesting Methods
Unlike in many other places, the fruit that is removed from the coffee bean is done so through the use of four various processing methods. In fact, it is rather common to find a single farm using all four methods throughout one harvest. This ensures quality and variety.
