Brazil

The largest Coffee producer in the world, Brazil exports primarily natural coffees, although some washed coffees are produced.

Brazilian coffees are primarily known for their heavy body and nuttiness in the cup, but there are also certain beans that would give you a bit of acidity and balance; however, generally speaking these coffees are all about body.

Colombia

Colombian coffees can be some of the finest coffees in the world. Extreme balance, great body, perfect acidity and crisp, slightly fruity finish round out these exquisite coffees. Colombia is the largest exporter in the world of washed Arabica coffees-third overall in terms of overall production.

The coffees are generally grown at very high elevations in the Andes, and some of the better Colombian coffees come from Bucaramanga, Medellin and Huila.

Peru

The Peruvian coffees tend to be intensely bright and light-bodied. Pleasing nutty character and chocolaty aroma of certain of these coffees lead to a nice, long finish. Peru also offers a decent array of certified varietals grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides
