Brazil happens to be the largest coffee producer in the world, in addition to being the largest country in South America (and the 5th largest in the world, as a matter of fact).
Not just any Brazilian bean will do
The vast majority of the coffee coming out of Brazil isn't even worth a glance - it's mass produced on large plantations with huge machines and sold to companies like Nestle for their cheap instant coffees or to commercial roasters as generic low-impact blends. But the best Brazils are highly sought after.
Smooth, nutty, light and delicate - these beans have a mild acidity and great overall profile. Opposite to most Central and South Americans where high-grown (and denser) beans are considered the best, the most expensive Brazils are low-grown, with Strictly Soft Bean being the highest grade.
