Where is our Coffee From?

Santos, São Paulo, the home to the Port of Santos, Brazil’s main coffee exporting port.

The rapid growth of the coffee industry in the 1920s turned São Paulo from a small town to one of the largest industrial centres in the developing world by attracting millions of immigrants.

The city’s population grew from 30,000 in the 1850s to one million in the 1930s.

The coffee grown here is of a very high quality, with an elevation of 600-1200m.

 

Brazil Coffee Port

 

In 2006 the Port of Santos became the busiest container port in Latin America, according to Wikipedia. What contributed to its success was the major overhaul and modernisation in the early 20th century, eliminating the risk of diseases and providing the port with a much more safe, industrial-age infrastructure.

Coffee was the main export of this port until the Second World War. It is now a slightly smaller component amongst cars, machinery, orange juice and soybeans.

 

Adams and Russell Brazil Santos Coffee

 

This would be a great option for those who are just being introduced into the world of coffee, as it is a light roast with a simple, low acidity.

It is also perfect as a refreshing change for those who are used to full bodied, dark roast beans.

A velvety smooth flavour and medium body with delicate touches of chocolate and vanilla aromatics, this coffee is sure to impress.
