The coffee belt crosses through five continents, which are South America, Central America, Africa, Asia and Oceania; Thus there are many different single origin coffees available on the market. Here are some of our favorite from the South American Region:
1. Brazilian Coffee
Brazil is the largest exporter in the world, supplying approximately 60% of the world's coffee - this is due in part to the sheer size of the country. Brazil’s diverse geography means there’s also a lot of diversity in coffee flavor. Robusta beans grown in the grasslands tend to be fairly unremarkable with mild earthy notes and an unpleasant bitterness. As you rise in elevation, you begin to see arabica coffee with more delicate flavors and sweetness, coffees with floral and fruity notes, and coffees with complex flavors that don’t resemble the typical Brazilian bean at all.
In specialty coffee, we see a couple different flavor profiles of Brazilian coffees. The more common is the earthy, spicy, nutty, sweet, and low-acidity bean that makes for a great blend foundation.
2. Colombian Coffee
Colombian coffee is known for its balanced, rich flavor. The country's diverse climate and geography produce coffees with a wide range of flavors, from bright and fruity to earthy and chocolatey. Colombia is the world's top 3 largest producer of coffee, and its beans are exported all over the world.
These coffees are now being sourced from specific regions within the country in order to highlight their unique flavor profiles. In addition, many of these coffees are now being blended with wine or alcohol flavors in order to create an even more unique flavor profile.
3. Peru Coffee
Peruvian coffee is grown in the country's mountainous regions. The coffee beans are typically dark roasted and have a smoky flavor with hints of chocolate. These coffees can be quite strong and have high acidity.
4. Venezuelan Coffee
