About The Coffee
Our Grind & Brew Mellow Bean is a 100 percent Cerrado blend that consistently captures the qualities this region is celebrated for: a creamy body, sweet chocolate and citric notes, and a light acidity.
The Cerrado region, in southwestern Minas Gerais, is known for its homogeneous climate and altitude. The average temperature is around 68°F, an average rainfall of 1,600 mm falls reliably from December to March, and the altitude lightly rolls from 900 to 1,250 meters above sea level. Such consistency is a big help to producers—who can focus on quality and production, instead of the weather.
"The main thing in Cerrado is the uniformity," the weather conditions allow for a lot of control, and the farmers in Cerrado are very professional and very high tech. Their use of harvesting machines, for example, allows them to better control the exact moment to harvest, which also contributes to uniformity."
Cerrado is home to approximately 140,000 hectares of dedicated coffee production and approximately 3,600 coffee producers, the majority of whom are organized into large cooperatives. Coffee farms in Cerrado vary in size from roughly 100 hectares to more than 3,000 hectares.
