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, famous for its homogeneous climate, altitude, and product quality characteristics. The average temperature lies around 20°C, with average rainfall of about 1,600mm per year, occurring mainly during the rainy season from December to March.
The Cerrado, with its production area of around 140,000 ha, is between 900 and 1,250 meters above sea level. In this area there are about 3600 coffee producers, the majority of them organized in large cooperatives.
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.
