Brazil Prima Qualita 17/18 Screen is a 3 bean blend from Brazil’s best growing regions –Cerrado, and Minas and Santos. Santos is the name of Brazil’s largest coffee seaport city located in the state of Sao Paulo. Most of the coffee exported through Santos is actually grown in the state Sao Paulo and the neighboring state of Minas Gerais. These two states produce the majority of Brazil’s coffee.

Brazil grows many varieties of coffee trees, but it is the Caturra variety that is the most popular because of its consistent good flavor, high yield and its suitability for mechanized harvesting. The Prima Qualita coffee are cured and processed by what is called the natural method. The harvested cherries are dried on huge patios the size of football fields and are then milled to certain specifications (bean size and lack of defects such as broken beans, black beans, etc.) The 17/18 refers to the screen size of the beans.
