Coffee's Role in Brazil

Brazil borders the Atlantic Ocean and makes up roughly half of South America. It houses the world’s largest forest, The Amazon, and almost every other terrain you could think of—dry grasslands (called pampas), rugged hills, pine forests, wetlands, plateaus, and a long coastline—this country has it all.

Brazil is the number one producer of coffee in the world and often dictates global pricing and supply and demand. In a country with massive farms and large regions, it’s truly remarkable how many exceptional lots have found their pick of high-quality roasters here.
