Coffee was introduced to Brazil from French Guiana in 1727 and Brazil has been the Top #1 producer of coffee for more than 150 years.
With Brazil being a dominant supplier of the world´s coffee, anything that affected production in Brazil had a huge effect on global coffee pricing.
Currently Brazil grows one-third of the world´s coffee spread over the 6 regions – Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Espirito Santo, Bahia, Parana and Rondoniá.
Minas Gerais: The largest coffee-growing state in Brazil and accounts for nearly 50% of the coffee production in Brazil. Its farms range from medium sized to large estates. With an altitude of 800-1300 m and well-defined seasons, this region is well suited to the production of specialty coffee. Minas Gerais has also some of the highest mountains in Brazil providing good altitude for Arabica coffee.
São Paulo: São Paulo is one of Brazil´s historical coffee growing states and the home to Brazil´s main coffee exporting port, Port of Santos.
Bahia: Located in the east of Brazil, the large state Bahia is one of northeastern most coffee growing areas in the country and it is gained fame for its quality beans.
Espirito Santo: Brazil´s second biggest coffee producing state, and the largest producer of Robusta. There can be some more interesting Arabica specialty coffees here.
Paraná: The lack of altitude prevents really high-quality coffees being grown here. Some of the farms growing exclusively Arabica in Norte Pioneiro do Parana, they also have high levels of productivity.
Rondoniá: This region is growing mainly Robusta coffee. It has a tropical climate with high temperatures and low altitudes.
