Cerrado NY2 17/18 Fine Cup
As the world's largest coffee producer, Brazilian lots often come in larger sizes with regional names. So, it becomes extremely helpful to understand regional nuances. The Cerrado region, the newest of three major Brazilian growing regions, has been building in reputation and production over the last few decades. Located between São Paulo and Brasilia, coffee in this region is grown on high plateaus at elevations peaking just over 1,000 meters above sea level. The region also has relatively mild weather patterns providing a more predictable climate for processing coffee. Cerrado lots frequently come from large suppliers that use highly mechanized processing strategies to manage larger volumes. When the coffee is milled for export, the green beans are sorted by screen size and graded according to size and then cupped for quality. Our current offering is 17/18 bean size and Fine Cup (FC).
