Today Brazzil Magazine posted an article on Brazil’s coffee resurgence in coffee within the past several years: Brazil – Brazzil Magazine – World Rediscovers Joy of Drinking Brazilian Coffee. The author credits this resurgence to quality gains, increases in production, and, oddly enough, positive news regarding health concerns over coffee.

Brazilian crop yields have improved in recent years. And while many specialty — and home — roasters dismiss espresso blends with a Brazilian base as “boring”, Brazil is producing some great quality beans lately … Cup of Excellence aside.

The article also goes on to discuss coffee consumption trends within Brazil and a bit of Brazil’s coffee history. Of course, no historical article would be complete without mentioning Brazilian inventor and aviator, Alberto Santos-Dumont — whom all Brazilian school children learn as the father of aviation.
