 Brazil

Cerrado is the newest coffee region in Brazil.  It was shaped by two important events.  In 1975, the “black frost” devastated plantations in Parana (at the time, the largest coffee-producing region in Brazil at that time).  At the same time, in western São Paulo, coffee plantations were struggling against an intense nematodes infestation. These two events brought Brazil’s coffee industry to its knees. 

Farmers set out in search of new areas to develop and arrived in Cerrado — an underdeveloped area with poor, acidic soil — just as a government effort was underway to understand the science of Cerrado’s soil and whether it might someday be a major food producer. Simple, inexpensive solutions wound up being effective, and coffee plants adapted well to Cerrado’s well-defined climate. Its warm temperatures, intense sunlight and dry winters aligned perfectly with the harvest, which demands dry weather. Today, coffee is grown here in 55 towns and across 210,000 hectares.

Ethiopia Washed

Sidamo enjoys soil and climatic conditions-including altitude, rainfall and temperature - that make it perfect for the production of Arabica Coffee. Speciality grade coffee from Sidamo is grown mainly in small villages. Sidamo is well known for its production of "garden coffee". The coffee is planted at low density, ranging from 1000 to 1800 trees per hectare and is mostly fertilized with organic matter. All of the coffee produced under this system is agronomically organic, but most is not certified as such.

  • Altitude: 1,500 - 2,200 meters ASL
  • Varieties: Heirloom Varietals
  • Processing: Washed
  • Harvest: November - January
