Brazil Santa Alina (Febuary 2021)Regular price $16.00
Brazil has been the world's largest producer of coffee for more than 150 years, and currently grows about one-third of the world's coffee! Being such a dominant supplier of coffee to the world means that anything that affects its coffee production would have a knock-on effect on the global pricing of coffee. An example would be the black frost of 1975, which reduced the crop yield in the following year by almost 75%! As a result, coffee prices increased by almost 2 - 300% wordwide during the mid 1970s.
The main coffee growing regions within Brazil incudes Bahia, Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Espírito Santo and Paraná. This month, we are featuring coffee from Fazenda Santa Alina, a farm located within São Sebastião da Grama, a municipality in the state of São Paulo. The farm is over a hundred years old and has won many awards for its coffee.
We find that the coffee from this farm is slightly different from some of the Brazilian coffee we have tasted, presenting a medium bodied cup of coffee exhibiting notes of red apple & toffee.
As our #dYScover beans are roasted specially, and separately from the rest of our offerings, we only have limited quantities per month! If you have ever thought or wondered about specialty coffee from Brazil, do make sure you give this a try soon!
There are so many different types of coffee grown in various regions of the world, with each region tasting very distinct from one another.
#dYScover, by Yong Seng Coffee, is our attempt at letting you experience specialty coffee from the various coffee-producing regions of the world. Read more about specialty coffee here!
Join us on this journey as we bring in coffee from different regions every month, as we explore the world of coffee together.
