About the bean

Even though nearly 75% of Brazil's coffee farms are considered small farm plantations (less than 10 acres each), Brazil has one of the industry's best, most advanced coffee processing systems.

Brazilian Santos gourmet coffee beans are processed using a natural dry method, which dries the coffee bean inside the cherry. This process ensures some of the fruit's sweetness remains.

Santos is the port much of Brazil's coffee passes through, it is not a coffee region.

Strictly Soft (SS-top grade): Grown at a lower altitude, this bean is less acidic than denser beans. The medium-toned brightness it does possess is somewhat reminiscent of tobacco/spice at first taste, but caramel is the longer note. This is a sweet bean and makes an excellent base for espresso.
