100% recyclable cardboard box containing 10 individually packaged, rice paper, 100% compostable, single-portion pods of the famous and prestigious Santos Brasile Guaxupè Dulce: this is a natural Arabica coffee, selected and marketed by the Exportadora de Cafè Guaxupè, one of the first export companies in Brazil. It is located in the heart of Minas Gerais, where the production of Brazilian quality coffee is most concentrated. Between 35 and 40% of the total production of the country’s Arabica beans are produced here. This coffee is balanced and sweet, with a lightly chocolatey aftertaste. Each ese pod is individually packaged in 100% recyclable material, to ensure the highest quality and the maximum freshness, whilst ensuring the utmost respect for the environment.
Brazil is the world’s largest coffee producer and exporter. Whilst it produces mainly Arabica, the country also boasts a sizeable production of Robusta. Coffee is mainly strip- harvested but some plantations use automated harvesting machines similar to those employed in olive-harvesting. The majority of coffee is dry-processed, whilst the semi-washed coffee processing method is called “cereja descascado”. Brazilian coffees are known on the international market by names that correspond to their location of origin or production; in particular Arabica coffees are named after the Port of Santos, the most important coffee port worldwide. Besides Brazilian Santos, another famous denomination is Rio, which refers to a type of coffee with a distinctive taste produced in the State of Rio as well as in a region called Zona de Mata, in the state of Minas Gerais or Espirito Santo.
The Brazilian classification system is the most comprehensive of all, covering all observable aspects of a specific batch from a visual, olfactory and gustatory point of view. Natural Arabica is very carefully selected and marketed by the Exportadora de Cafè Guaxupè, one of the top ten Brazilian exporters based in the heart of the southern region of Minas Gerais. As much as 35 to 40% of the total national production of quality coffee is concentrated in this area. The coffee is sweet and balanced with a slightly chocolatey aftertaste.
An important characteristic of our coffees is that they are artisan- roasted: only experience and human supervision can guarantee optimal roasting. Indeed, successful co ee roasting depends on achieving a ne balance between time and temperature.
