Brazilian coffee beans
Our single-origin beans are sourced from lush, high-altitude Brazilian plantations and boast a sweet, prolonged flavour, with subtle caramel notes and a smooth finish. Handpicked and roasted on-site here in Australia, they really are the ‘bean’ of the crop.
High-altitude coffee beans from Brazil
Geography impacts the flavour of coffee beans in a big way, which is why top roasters are keen to source beans from countries and origins renowned for their coffee-growing climates, altitudes and nutrient-rich soils. Brazil is the perfect example of this!
Plants grown at higher altitudes produce harder, denser beans with diverse aromas and higher sugar concentrations. How? They’re privy to cooler climates, which slows growth and encourages bigger cherries.
Premium single-origin coffee
Single-origin, speciality coffee beans boast exotic tasting notes, bold aromas and robust flavours. Unlike coffee blends, which are the result of an amalgamation of several beans from numerous locations, single-origin coffee from Brazil is celebrated for its purity and quality, with each bean telling a story about its unique origin and the place in which it was grown.
True connoisseurs look to five diverse elements when determining tasting notes in specialty coffees from Brazil, and coffee beans online. These include flavour, aroma, body, acid content, and aftertaste.
Premium, green Brazilian coffee beans boast smooth, nutty notes, a mild yet balanced flavour, and a bittersweet aftertaste, with a chocolate roast finish.
Why is Brazil a great place to source coffee?
Brazil's climate is one of the best in the world for growing coffee. Why? Because the majority of the country sits within a tropical zone. Plantations in this region are privy to humid, hot weather, ranging from temperate to tropic and rich, fertile soils. All of these factors make Brazil a prime region to both grow coffee crops and buy coffee.

Brazil coffee beans variations
Brazil is home to numerous high-quality plantations, all renowned for producing coffee of varying flavours. Brazilian coffee beans are celebrated for their sweet flavours, which linger on the tongue and their mild caramel undertones.
The single-origin beans we source from Brazilian plantations are handpicked onto cloth and scrutinised to ensure the utmost quality.
Available in a variety of sizes comprising 250g, 500g and 1kg and various styles, including Whole Bean, Espresso Ground and Plunger Ground, there are Brazilian coffees to suit all tastes - even those of the most discerning coffee connoisseurs.
When you buy whole bean coffee, you’re buying the best coffee beans in their original form. These beans are highly versatile, promise optimal freshness and can be ground moments before making a brew. The result? A series of complex, fresh flavours that provide that heady coffee aroma associated with your favourite barista.
Espresso ground coffee comes in the shape of a darker roast, which results in a smoky bourbon flavour that is still mild enough to enjoy at any time of the day. This finely ground style from Brazil is perfectly suited to a drip brew coffee maker, and an ideal option for those who don’t have the tools to grind coffee beans at home, yet still wish to create speciality coffees brimming with flavour on tap.
A must-buy for those who require a coarser grind, which has been tailored for use in a plunger - anything finer and the coffee particles will fall through the filter. Plunger ground coffee can be brewed for a total of four minutes without becoming bitter. The result? Fresh, strong, grade-a Arabica coffee with hints of bourbon, chocolate and caramel.

What makes Brazilian coffee good?
The best Brazilian coffee beans boast sweet caramel undertones perfectly complemented by bittersweet bourbon and dark chocolate flavours. Each variant offers a full-bodied smoothness, low acidity and a slight nuttiness. This profile is what makes speciality Brazilian coffee beans the perfect base for long black blends and strong, flavoured brews.
What does Brazilian coffee taste like?
This is dependent on the roast and the region. Most coffee connoisseurs prefer the taste of medium to dark roasted Brazilian beans. Our green beans are low in acidity, boast a nutty, caramel flavour and a slightly bitter, chocolatey edge.
Is Brazilian Coffee arabica?
Arabica coffee beans are prevalent in both Brazil and across the globe. Today, these beans make up around 70% of global coffee production, with robusta beans accounting for the remaining 30%.
How do you roast Brazilian coffees?
To avoid an overpowering bitter taste, it’s important to source Brazilian beans from expert roasters. Medium to dark roasts promises the right level of acidity, a slight cocoa bitterness, a full body and nutty, caramel undertones.
Why is high-altitude coffee the best?
Altitude plays an important part in coffee production and the quality of the bean in Brazil. The higher the elevation, the longer the maturation process! What does this mean for the coffee plant? Fruit-bearing dense, complex sugars, harvested to create richer, more enthralling flavours - it’s these intense flavours that give Brazilian coffee its status.
Another reason coffee connoisseurs and baristas prefer beans grown at higher altitudes is that farms in these regions can offer better drainage to their plants. Asides from slowing down growth, this reduces the fruit’s water consumption and ensures a fuller, more potent flavor.
Is Australia a good place for coffee production?
Australia is situated close to some of the best coffee growing regions in the world. Our roasters benefit from easy access to numerous top plantations in a variety of regions, including Brazil. Being able to source beans from reputable farmers across the globe and roast them on-site here in Australia allows us to produce a variety of whole beans, ground coffee products and roasts.
All of these items can be delivered directly to your door, ensuring you have access to fresh coffee on tap, morning, noon and night!
Which country is the largest producer of green coffee?
