Coffee production in Brazil represents about one-third of the entire coffee production, making it by far the biggest producer worldwide for the last 150 years. In central Brazil, the extensive Cerrado savannah is interrupted by seemingly endless plateaus called Chapadas. They cover the states Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul, Mato Grosso, Tocantins, and Minas Gerais, turning them into one of the largest coffee production areas in the world. Around Minas Gerais, farmers have started to concentrate on cultivating mainly specialty coffees. Well-defined seasons with hot, wet summers and pleasantly cool, dry winters favor coffee cultivation in this region.

It is precisely this region where this coffee was produced, specifically in Santo Antônio do Amparo, located in the southern part of the province of Minas Gerais. Along Fazenda Mirante, Pedro Gabarra owns other farms in the area, where many different varieties such as Arara, Caturra, Geisha, Mundo Novo, Bourbon, and Topázio grow. The farm has a total area of 102 hectares of which 71 are dedicated to coffee cultivation. Since its foundation, there has been a significant emphasis on producing high quality coffee while improving the social and environmental impact of the farm. Some of their projects involve improved waste management systems, the provision of environmental education in schools, and opening the farm for the rehabilitation and release of over 900 animals (Wings Project).

Moreover, the farm has also implemented solar panels, and as of 2022, obtained carbon-neutral certification from GRÖN. This certification signifies that the farm absorbs more carbon dioxide than it releases, actively contributing to the battle against climate change.

Brazil is well-known for its geographical vastness. The Amazon basin stretches over more than a thousand kilometers, while an endless coastline frames the country in the east. In the central parts of Brazil, the Cerrado plateaus cover the states Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul, Mato Grosso, Tocantins, and Minas Gerais, making it one of the largest coffee production regions in the world.
Coffee production in Brazil represents about one-third of the entire coffee production, making it by far the biggest producer worldwide for the last 150 years. Both Arabica and Robusta (known as Conilon) are grown, whereas Arabica dominates with a growing share of ca. 80%.

Coffees from Brazil are described in detail: NY 2 stands for "New York 2" and refers to the maximum number of allowed defects, according to the defect count method of the New York stock exchange. It is quality-wise the highest grade. Screen 17/18 defines the bean size. It is one of the biggest among Brazilian grades. Strictly soft, fine cup describes the cup profile – requiring a smooth, consistent and clean cup. The most common processing method in Brazil, used for about 90% of the Arabicas produced, is the dry process, also known as unwashed or natural. The entire coffee cherry is first cleaned and then placed in the sun to dry in thin layers on the patios or dried by drying machines. Coffee plantations in Brazil often cover immense areas of land, need hundreds of people to manage and operate them and produce large quantities of coffee.
