History of Coffee in Brazil

American colonists had enjoyed coffee for fifty years before the inaugural coffee seed took root in Brazil in 1727. A century later, Brazil claimed 30% of the global coffee market. By the 1920s, Brazil's dominance reached a zenith, with an 80% share of the world's coffee production. Despite peaking in the 1920s, Brazil's ongoing reign as the top coffee producer continues to wield significant sway over market dynamics and coffee pricing. The adage "when Brazil sneezes, the coffee world catches cold" reflects this influence. In 1975, a devastating "black frost" obliterated over 70% of Brazil's coffee crop, leading to a doubling of coffee prices worldwide. Brazil's historical impact is further evidenced by its role as a founding member of the Pan-American Coffee Bureau, credited with popularizing the "coffee break" concept in the early 1950s through an innovative advertising campaign.

What is specialty coffee?
Specialty coffee is a selection of coffees that are rated at least 80 out of 100. Coffee is graded using a scale, that has been created by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) to qualify desirable attributes within coffee.
How do I brew my coffee?
There are many ways to brew a great cup of coffee! We use a V60 in our roastery, but there are more methods available than we could begin to mention. The keys to great coffee are grinding fresh, using great water, and using an ideal ratio of coffee to water.

We offer a variety of roast levels from light to dark. Each coffee is roasted specifically to bring out the best flavor attributes for that coffee.

Our recommendation is to brew within 60 days of its roast date.
What's the best way to store my coffee?
You can certainly store coffee in the sealed Clay Coffee Co. bags, in a cool, dark place. You might choose to use an air-tight container to reduce oxidation which promotes a longer shelf life.
