The Brazil Monte Carmelo is located in the Cerrado Region. This region is located in the southeastern part of Brazil known as the minas Gerias Estate. Consistent rains and high daytime temperature and dry winters make it ideal for coffee growing. This region has a rich deep soil know to the natives as “Terra Rosa” (rich dirt). The wet method is used to process the beans. The beans are then sun-dried in patios for two to three weeks, weather permitting. The Monte Carmelo is grown at an altitude of 200 to 800 meters above sea level. The beans are harvested from April through September. The Monte Carmelo is shipped year round all over the world. The Monte Carmelo bean is a big, bold bean sometimes varying in color from light green to dark green. When cupped, it is nutty in flavor and might also have chocolate tones to it.
