Brazil Oberon (Dark Roast)
Oberon coffee could be described as the Queen of Brazilian coffees. Only the best and finest coffees from Brazil’s Cerrado region find their way into Oberon. The Cerrado region is located in the southwestern part of the Minas Gerais state. It is a region famous for its homogeneous climate, altitude and product quality characteristics.
Cerrado is located in a dry and flat region in southwestern Minas Gerais. Because it is mainly dry and flat, producers can worry less about the elements and focus more of their time and energy on producing great coffee. The cherries are picked at the best stage of their maturation, which allows the bean to absorb as much sweetness as possible. The Oberon is the perfect blend of the three main characteristics found in coffee (acidity, body, and sweetness). This makes for a well-balanced coffee that has pleasant, citric acidity, a smooth and full body, nice sweetness, and a dark chocolate flavor.
All year long, a work force of around 20,000 men and women are employed here. This work force is necessary to take care of the plantations during the growth and ripening time. During the harvest season this number increases up to 180,000 workers, all working to bring in the coffee as fast as possible in order to guarantee the high quality that this region is so well known for.
