Brazilian Coffee

A high quality Brazilian coffee has been described as soft, nutty, low acid including some bitter sweet chocolate tastes. It makes for an exceptional base for creating flavored coffees. One favorite coffee is natural Brazil. The beans, when processed, are laid out to dry in the sun dry with the cherry still attached. This greatly accounts for the rich dry fruit flavor from the bean, and in turn adds to the body associated with the coffee.

Coffee Processing techniques in Brazil

 

Dry method

This is a naturally way of processing coffee while it is not yet removed from the cherry. Only the floating cherries are removed before drying. The coffee is very sweet, heavy bodied, complex and smooth owing to the fact that it is dried while still with contact with mucilage(it is sweet). Since it is dried for longer time might have fermented, it is basically among the complex variety while dealing with it. For this reason Brazil have put more effort in terms of time and resources to come up with advanced techniques in order to avert fermentation.

Wet processing

This is somehow a new method for getting rid of the four coatings that surrounds coffee beans. The product is usually a bright, clean and richer coffee. Small amount of Brazilian coffee is processed using this method as compared to the dry processing.

Pulped natural (semi washed)

This method involves emission at the fermenting stage in order to get rid of the silver skin when pumping coffee. The pulped natural method gives an intermediate product with wet and dry processing properties. this make it more sweeter than in wet processing while heavy body like dry processed retaining the acidity nature from wet processing. This method is only suitable for low humidity areas to avoid fermentation and thus favoring Brazil.

The method that is mostly used in Brazil to process coffee is the dry technique owing to its favorable weather that enables processing using the method successful. Brazil has unique moderate wet and dry seasons that enable coffee plants flowering and the maturation of cherry to be homogeneous. This makes it possible for mechanical and strip picking harvesting techniques. The over ripped and under ripe cherries are still harvested but carefully methods are used to remove them. Besides being number one coffee producing nation, Brazil also have the best coffee processing techniques.

Another type of coffee found in Brazil is the re- passed. Is a floater and is discarded together with other floaters though some people find it sweeter than the semi washed coffee. The reason for this is that it has stayed long in the field before being collected thus drying for long periods. Therefore, the coffee beans have long interaction with the mucilage prior to the fermentation. Before discarding the floaters, re-passed coffee is removed from the rest floaters using a technique called barrel system and then they are re-passed to be processed through pulping. This coffee is also called raisin.
