  • What a fun coffee to drink! The aroma displays spice and nuts. Great for espresso, lattes, or any cup at any time of day.
  • The flavor brings in a big nutty dimension, tempered by flavors of caramel and chocolate. This coffee is an absolute must to try alone or to blend with some of your other favorites. Great at ANY roast level too!
  • Fresh Roasted Each Morning & Shipped in the Afternoon! The body is smooth and syrupy. Wonderful espresso and flavorful iced or hot!
  • This finish gives a very nice lingering caramel flavor - very good! Excellent body, smooth finish, a remarkable South America cup with great diversity too!
  • Brazil Cerrado Coffee Beans: 100% Arabica and the highest grade of the famous Brazilian beans, lively and inviting with a smooth, sweet taste.

Brazil Cerrado Coffee Beans: the highest grade of the famous Brazilian beans, lively and inviting with a smooth, sweet taste. Beans from the Cerrado region have cupped better than those from the Santos region. Cerrado is a huge region in Brazil, meaning "savanna", or central plateau. Coffee grown in this region is cultivated at an altitude of 200-500 meters above sea level--quite a bit lower than our Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) Central American Coffees. Because Cerrado is a softer bean, some roasters think it shouldn't be roasted overly dark. Other Roasters thinks Cerrado should be roasted dark, but watch out for scorching. Dark roasting brings out an exceptional nutty flavor and enhances the body of the coffee. Our Cerrado is a traditionally natural dry processed coffee. This method creates a complexity of flavors. Brazilian coffees make excellent bases for some very intriguing blends, particularly in espresso. A lot of the very best espresso blends have a Brazilian base. Many of the finest Italian espresso blends are mostly Brazilian coffee. It will add body and sweetness to your blend, and helps form a wonderful crema in your espresso. Since it is a dry processed coffee, it may roast a bit unevenly, but this only adds to the complexity in the cup. It actually makes a fine cup on it's own. Hardness of the Bean: Moderately dense--softer than high grown Central American coffees. Roasting: Start with a Full City to Full City + (Medium to Medium Dark). Because Brazilian coffees tend to be grown at lower elevations than Central American coffees, the bean is not as hard so approach it with a gentler roast profile until you get accustomed to it. This coffee benefits from an extended rest (72+ hours). Recommendation: For people who enjoy coffee with lots of body and low acidity. The lower acidity means virtually no "bite". Again, this is a superb coffee for Italian style espresso, either single origin, or as a majority of a blend.

Smooth and Low Acid

I first tasted this origin while living in SE Asia. Found it in the US at RhoadsRoast and love the med/city roast.

Really Good Coffee

Very good coffee. My mistake in ordering only a medium roast instead of a medium/dark roast. Medium roast is a little light & thin for my taste, and I have to use about 20% more beans and let it brew longer to make it taste better. Ordered before and will order again with more care regarding the degree of roast.

Brazil Cerrado Light Roast Beans Make for a Good Pairing

If you're looking for a good light roast coffee bean to pair with a bolder coffee, this one is a great choice. Light enough to pair with your favorite dessert after dinner and the perfect choice to combine with another bolder coffee bean in the morning for a flavor that's unmatched. Simply delightful!

5 star

I thought about giving the Brazilian Cerrado a 1 star rating so I could have it all to myself, but truthfully it’s a five star
