Exploring Coffee Growing Regions with Ginger Monkey Coffee Roasters in Chester


As one of the world’s largest producers in the coffee industry, it would be no surprise to us if Brazilian coffee is the one you’ve heard most about, but how exactly did coffee production start in Brazil?

Originally established by French settlers in the 18th century, the coffee plant was brought to the state of Pará. It wasn’t long after this initial introduction that coffee fields began to spread across the country, and by 1840, Brazil had made itself known as the largest coffee exporter in the world and one of its largest consumers. The coffee fields are located across 16 different states in Brazil, with the majority present in the states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo, and Paraná. For our coffee, we decided to buy our roast from a farm in São Paulo. With the perfect environment and weather conditions, we’re guaranteed a great crop that offers beautiful nutty undertones and a glossy crema.

Tasting notes/ Characteristics

Now, what does it taste like? While the history is incredibly important, if what you really want to know about your coffee is how good it’ll taste in the morning, then read on.

With its smooth sweetness and low acidity levels, Brazilian coffee often reigns champion as the perfect espresso base. For our roast, specifically, we’ve chosen a chocolatey coffee that offers a fruity papaya aftertaste. This medium roast works brilliantly as a general crowd-pleaser, as it tastes great both black and through milk. With this coffee being the most versatile out of our collection, we recommend having a bag in as your favourite cupboard staple.

Staff recommend trying it as a flat white.


Fun facts.

‘Nossa Casa', the name of this roast, translates to ‘Our Home’. We chose this name as Brazil has always been our house favourite, and while we do switch up what’s in the hopper, this roast will always be considered home at our Coffee Shop and Roasters here in Chester.

Each region in Brazil will often serve coffee with their own speciality snack, such as speciality breads or tapioca crepes.

Our roast is honey processed, which means that the beans have been processed with a method that combines both washed and natural processing. This type of washing is what creates that natural fruity flavour.
