Brazil Santos Coffee Beans
The Brazil Santos Coffee Culture
Coffee's popularity in Brazil reaches all ages and demographics. One of the most popular drinks of the country is Café com Leite, which is a strong coffee blended with a large amount of milk. This drink is usually served at breakfast to adults and children alike. Another popular Brazilian drink is the cafezinho, made with a strong coffee blend similar to that used in café com leite and a large portion of sugar.
Brazil produces about a third of the world's coffee, making the country by far the world's largest producer. Coffee plantations, covering some 27,000 km2 (10,000 sq mi), are mainly located in the southeastern states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Paraná where the environment and climate provide ideal growing conditions.

In Brazil, coffee is traditionally consumed multiple times a day. The day often starts with a 'cafezinho', a small, strong black coffee usually sweetened to taste. It is not just a morning ritual but a gesture of hospitality, frequently offered to guests upon entering a home or establishment.
