The best commercial Brazilian coffee brands are not a unanimous concept as taste varies so much. Check out this article to see our opinion about them.
One should always keep in mind that commercial coffee is not gourmet specialty coffee. Those should not be compared with each other.
Some people say that commercial Brazilian Coffee Brands are generally bad. I totally disagree.
What I see is that most people, even some connoisseurs, don’t know the basics of how to make good home coffee.
Most of them don’t follow a rule of high importance:
“Mama, don’t let your coffees boil up to be spoiled…”
That’s is a rule that should never be taken for granted, especially with commercial coffee.
The reason is very simple. Our commercial Brazilian Coffee Brands are not pure Arabica. They all carry a small portion of the cheaper Robusta type.
That makes them a bit harder than the pure Arabica and easier to get bitter if you raise the heat above the limit.
We have prepared a list of our preferred choices available in Brazilian supermarkets, as well as a small list of options available in some other countries.
This brand started becoming important and better known in the 80’s. Since then, it became a huge competitor for the market. Delicious coffee.
This is my first (it’s a tie, actually) choice for an everyday coffee. It is not a wide common sense preference, but a lot of people here choose it as I do.
The german native company came to Brazil in the 70’s to introduce its dripping method system paper filters. It became a success. A few years later they started producing one of the best commercial coffees in the country.
A great brand from Marilia, SP, Brazil. It is the best commercial espresso coffee ground here. They also have exceptional grounds for pour over brewing. I find this to be the most delicious brand from Brazil.
This is only placed third on the list because, unfortunately, it is no easy to find outside my country; Even in some regions of Brazil. Here, in fact, it is still a growing brand that is an absolute preference in the areas that sell it.
If you have any information about this coffee being sold in your country, please share it in the comments area and I will research and write an article about it.
Like Pilão, this is old-days coffee. Very traditional, it is mostly used among older people.
Pilão and Caboclo compete in the market along with Três Corações.
Some farmers say this is the best commercial coffee in Brazil. I have tried it and it is really very good. Unfortunately, this one is not easy to find in your everyday Brazilian supermarket.
Café do Ponto
For some time, mostly the 90’s, this brand expanded a lot and became well known all over the country.
I don’t like it much because it’s a bit hard to my taste, but some guys here at the office demanded it on this list.
(mainly in the USA)
Unfortunately, not all Brazilian commercial brands are available in the US and other countries. You can find them easily on Amazon and Brazilian stores.
These are the brands we would like to suggest. They follow our order of preference
- Pilão (read review)
- Melitta (read review)
- Caboclo (read review)
- Três Corações (read review)
- Café do Ponto (read review)
I hope this will help you find a nice commercial coffee brand with a reasonable cost-benefit ratio that will blow your mind when you drink it.
