With large areas of the country growing quality coffee beans, Brasil is a leading producer and exporter of coffee, offering an enormous amount of variety. Unlike many other countries of Central and south America, the particularity of Brasilian Santos is that it is grown in plantations located at relatively low altitude, between 900 and 1,250 meters above sea level.
Brasilian Santos is a well-balanced coffee and it is therefore an equally great choice as a single-origin coffee or in a blend with other beans. As its beans are unwashed, they have less tang and are often used with acidic coffees such as Kenyan coffee for example, which is particularly strong on its own. By wrapping even a small amount of Brasilian Santos around the washed bean, the flavour of both is transformed. So if your taste buds fancy some adventure from the comfort of your home, Brasilian Santos is ideal to work out exotic blends to your liking.

Blending tip: when deciding on a mixed roast blend it usually works better to have more of the milder roast, less of the stronger.
Blending tip: even the strongest roast can be mixed with a normal tasting blend – so long as you use very little. Start by trying one part in four.
