Each brew is also roasted with the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transfer to roast the coffee beans. Brazil Santos Coffee is the best of the best and is a great start to the morning. Wake up the right way; choose Brazil Santos Coffee today for quality and taste, guaranteed.
Brazil constitutes a third of the world’s coffee production, as well as being the largest. This is partly, although not exclusively, due to the sheer size of the South American country. Brazil has an average elevation for coffee production of 1,100, which is significantly lower than many other neighbouring nations. The harvesting of the berries usually takes place from May to September and by the end of the season, creates on average 40 to 60 million bags for exportation. In 2016, Brazil produced a staggering 2,595,000 metric tons of coffee. That’s incredible!
Coffee was first introduced to Brazil by French settlers who established themselves in the state of Pará in the early 18th Century. Plants were quick to thrive in the landscape owing to ideal climatic conditions. During this period, sugar plantations provided the greatest income for Brazil. Coffee, meanwhile, was regarded as a mere luxury. But change was on the wind and in the 1820’s, coffee overtook sugar exports. 20 years later and Brazil was the largest coffee exporter in the world.
The success of the Brazilian Coffee Industry brought about change to the country’s entire society. Brazil relied heavily on the ruling of so-called “coffee barons”, the wealthy owners of coffee plantations. These coffee barons wielded significant power, first contributing to the Republic and then strongly influencing and even determining the direction of the country’s future presidential elections. For a long time, coffee defined a nation.
Unfortunately, this came at a price. For the majority of the 19th Century, slaves were used to bolster the industry, which then temporarily collapsed in 1888 following the abolition of slavery. However, the government were quick to find a solution, encouraging European immigrants to work in the Brazilian coffee fields.
But disaster struck again in 1929 following the Wall Street Crash and then the Great Depression of the 1930’s. Coffee prices plunged as sales dried up; no one could afford their morning brew anymore. For decades the Industry struggled on, surviving to once again flourish. Today, it is hard to imagine a world without Brazilian Coffee and thankfully, we don’t have to. Brazil Santos Coffee is the choice-brew for many. Is it yours, too?
