Java may have invented industrialized coffee, but Brazil upped the ante. Efficient, flat lands, good climate, and water availability make it the world’s coffee king. Though little of its coffee is truly distinctive, there’s much to like about it. Because of its notoriously low acidity, this coffee is perhaps the most useful for blending. Throughout the 1800s and into the early twentieth century, Brazil produced more than half of the world’s coffee. Brazil’s farmers use a variety of processes (though most Brazilian coffee is processed wet) and the country has a variety of climates, but a naturally fertile terroir exists throughout.
