Calusa Coffee Roasters - Brazil CerradoWe started roasting Brazil Cerrado yesterday… Well, I should clarify that not all of us roasted as the foreman of the project rested while the other roasted and bagged the coffee ( see photo)..

The Brazil Cerrado is located in the Cerrado Region. This region is located in the part of Brazil known as the Minas Gerias Estate. Consistent rains and high daytime temperature and dry winters make it ideal for coffee growing.

The Cerrado coffee is generally clean with a good body (creamy mouthfeel) and features more crema and body, adding sweetness, nutty, and low acidity. It can also have a bittersweet and even slightly caramelly flavor when light-roasted and a more chocolate taste if roasted darker.
