Brazilian coffee beans are always deliciously sweet. Let’s face it, the Brazilians know how to grow coffee. Learn more…



The coffee beans from Brazil are always known for their great flavours. Harvesting usually begins between April and September¬†during the dry period and when the temperature is around 15-25 degrees Celsius. The Brazilian climate is perfect for growing coffee trees, with steady tropical temperatures it’s no wonder Brazil has the largest production of coffee beans in the world (contributing to over a third of the entire coffee bean production).

The Icatu beans are a hybrid variety created by crossing arabica and robusta (bourbon) beans and then backcrossing with a Mundo Novo. The Icatu coffee is grown in Minas Gerais, one of the 26 states of Brazil situated in the southern part of the country and it is widely known as the capital of coffee production. Growing very nicely at about 250m up the highlands, the cherries can come in both Yellow and Red (and supposedly Blue but there has been no evidence of this yet). The coffee doesn’t necessarily come from one farm but is more of a “cooperative microlot” initiative, getting the best selection of beans for the roasters.

Brazilian coffee is used in many blends because it is such a stable bean, but try it on its own and you’ll find it’s all you need as you’ll discover some of the most delicious cocoa flavours and a¬†tangy mandarin acidity upfront.

Tasting notes

The Brazilian beans are used as a base coffee bean for most blends as it allows the rich cocoa and malt flavours to come through whilst not overpowering any other flavours in the mix. On its own though, it defines premium quality coffee and you will notice the subtle flavours of maple syrup.

A great All-Rounder coffee means you can drink this in just about any forms of coffee style. Whether it be through and Aeropress, Chemex filter or as an espresso, this origin delivers.

    My current ‘morning coffee’! I really like this bean, I would have given it 5 stars but my machine doesn’t do it justice, so its probably even better in the right hands…

    Very rich & malty – they seemed like a dark roast rather than a medium. Best fresh.

    Beautiful coffee! I’ve been searching for the perfect long black ever since I discovered that my body no longer tolerates milk. This coffee has a nice full taste but isn’t at all bitter.

    It’s not the best coffee I’ve ever tasted but it’s decent nonetheless. It’s got a relatively smooth texture with just a hint of bitterness, not so much that it’s unpleasant but just enough to give it a bit of bite.

    Seemed like a darker roast and had a pleasant taste. Used in an aero press for a long black.

    You’ll find that most beans bought from this website have a place. This ones is for those mornings when waking up is just that little bit more difficult – for whatever reason. Citrus tones were subtle but the real hit was cocoa and maple; you’ll be ready to face the day in no time.

    Great all-rounder – tastes great through my filter/press, and in everything from long blacks to piccolos.
