Coffee cultivation in Brazil

The Brazilian topography is formed by three geographical units: the Amazon River Basin, the Brazilian Massif and the Guiana Shield, which influence a heterogeneous coffee harvest.

Brazil is the most biodiverse country in the world with 6 ecosystems: The Amazon, The Atlantic Forest, The Caatinga, The Pantanal, The Pampa and the Cerrado, the latter being the ecosystem where the largest coffee production is obtained.

The soils where coffee is grown in Brazil have the particularity of not being volcanic, they are usually located in non-forested areas and on flat land. The soils are deep and very old.

Brazil, due to its geographical location, has two predominant climates: equatorial and tropical. The climate in the coffee-growing areas is warm, semi-humid and highly seasonal, with rainy summers and humid winters. Rainfall during the year is usually from November to March. In Brazil, the maximum daily temperature averages 29 degrees Celsius.
