Brazil Santos Light Roasted Coffee Beans

Brazil is responsible for around 25% of the worlds coffee, making it one of the largest coffee producers, a title it has held for the last 150 years. Brazilian coffee is described to be well balanced, with a variety of smooth sweetness in addition to a medium body. Santos is a coffee grown in multiple plantations from the large commercial agricultural states of Brazil.

For those coffee drinkers who are new to buying from a roaster, Santos would be a great option. Its light roast represents the standard roast profile that small batch roasters prefer, therefore allowing nuanced flavours to come through in the cup. Notable flavours of Brazilian coffee includes chocolate and nut with a low acidity. So if you like your coffee sweeter and with little bitterness this is an ideal choice. 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 this coffee is sure to impress and we hope you enjoy it.

Brazil Coffee Port

Santos is a beautiful coastal city in southern Brazil’s São Paulo state. It has a population of over 400,000. The city owes its economic success to the coffee trade as the exporting of coffee and other commodities in the 20th century greatly contributed to its wealth.

In 2006 the Port of Santos became the busiest container port in Latin America. 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.

Brazil Coffee Growing Regions
A quick guide to some of Brazil's coffee growing regions. Minas Gerais is the largest coffee-growing state in Brazil, with just under 50% of the country's coffee production grown here. Minas Gerais has some of the highest mountains in Brazil, elevation being important for coffee to mature correctly. Producing regions include Sul de Minas, Cerrado de Minas, Chapada de Minas and Matas de Minas. Espirito Santo is Brazils' second biggest coffee state but tends to focus more on arabicas counterpart; robusta. Espirito Santos is home to many nature reserves and tropical beaches, creating a lot of agro-tourism. Bahia is perhaps Brazil's number 1 agriculture state, and contains cooler temperatures which allows for a wide range of crops to be grown. Located in North East, Brazil, most of the coffee exported from Bahia is arabica (75%), all of which being of high quality. The two producing regions are Cerrado and Planalto da Bahia and Atlantico Baiano. Rondonia exclusively grows Robusta coffee with high temperatures and low altitudes with a tropical climate.
