Blog about coffees journey from farm to your cup

Posted by Jim Dodge on

This is just a short description of how we get that great tasting cup of coffee into your hands.

Coffee production in Brazil is responsible for about a third of all coffee. Making Brazil by far the world's largest producer. Coffee plantations,
covering some 27,000 km², are mainly located in the southeastern states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Paraná where the environment and climate provide ideal growing conditions.

Brazil coffee harvest starts in the heart of its biggest city. (Sao Paulo)
Brazil's arabica harvest kicked off with volunteers
picking through one of the world's largest urban coffee farms.

Coffee is one of the U.S.’s largest food imports. It wields an economic impact
that starts with farmers from Brazil to Vietnam and ends with the barista at your
local coffeehouse, involving hundreds of truckers, shippers, roasters and retail workers in between.

Like many agricultural enterprises, coffee is grown on large plantations and small farms alike.
Harvests are purchased by coffee mills located proximate to coffee growing regions.

The green beans are brought into the U.S. by importers and sold to roasters and major coffee brands whose roasting facilities are typically located in coastal cities with seaports that can receive the coffee shipments.

Once roasted, coffee will be ground (or left as whole beans), packaged and shipped to distribution centers around the country for eventual delivery to your home.

Here is where you enter the process. The best part of this whole journey.
And you get to be a part of it. When orders are placed we package them up for shipping and send them out as quick as possible. The fresher the coffee, the better your cup of coffee.

So, the next time you are enjoying a great cup of Premium Coffee Outlet coffee remember the journey those beans took to get in your cup!
