The Region

In the Chapada Diamantina region the coffee develops and matures at an altitude between 900 to 1,350 masl which contributes to a humid and cool climate. The region, that is known for several award-winning coffees, is formed mostly by smallholder farmers who depend on family farming as a source of income. The coffee from Chapada Diamantina has unique characteristics and special flavors. Care of family farming is present in all coffee producing processes, harvesting, postharvesting, combined with special attention to sustainability. The production of high-quality coffee is also due mainly to the unique climate and relative high altitude of the Chapada Diamantina region, which gives the coffee remarkable flavour, typically with notes of molasses, citrus and red fruits.


History of Coffee in Brazil

American colonists had been drinking coffee for fifty years before the first coffee seed was planted in Brazil in 1727. A hundred years later, Brazil accounted for 30% of the world’s coffee supply. A hundred years after that, in the 1920’s, Brazil held a virtual monopoly, producing 80% of the world’s coffee. Although Brazil’s market share peaked at 80% in the 1920’s, its continuing status as the world’s largest coffee producer still gives the country considerable influence on the market and coffee prices. It is said that when Brazil sneezes, the coffee world catches cold. In 1975, a “black frost” destroyed over 70 percent of the crop in Brazil and coffee prices doubled world-wide. Brazil was a founding member of the Pan-American Coffee Bureau, which invented the concept of a “coffee break,” during an advertising campaign in the early 1950’s.
