Francisco De Melo Palheta...planted the first coffee tree in the state of Pará in 1727 and coffee then spread south reaching Rio de Janeiro in 1770. Coffee was initially planted only for domestic consumption but during the 19th century demand for coffee started to increase in America and Europe. By 1820, coffee plantations began to expand in the states of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais, representing 20% of the world production and, by 1830, coffee became Brazil's largest export.
Its subtle sweetness and nutty flavor lend to the perfect Cold Brew.
