The Brazil Cerrado Select is a mellow and sweet coffee,
ideal for parties and special occasions. It comes from the
a savannah-like region in Central Brazil called "Cerrado". In this region
the climate is generally dry during harvest. This allows for the
freshly harvested coffee beans to be naturally sun-dried.
The process of
naturally sun-drying coffee beans preserves some of the sugars on the
surface of the bean. When roasted to a medium dark roast, these sugars
are not burned but preserved in the roasted beans giving the coffee a nice
round finish and background sweetness. The Air Roasting process that
we use at GranCoffee contributes towards preserving these sugars
because it ensures that there is no scorching of the surface of the beans and it
ensures that the coffee is roasted very uniformly.
