In Brazil, the second historic coffee boom ran between 1880’s and 1930’s, during the so-called Coffee and Milk Policy historic period. The name refers to the large productions of coffee and milk of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, respectively and how those states managed to monopolize Brazil’s Presidency chair during those decades.

    I think you’ve done a great job with this site in that the theme looks very cool and you provide great information. I also think it is very cool that you offer custom made wall paper created by your artist. I have a friend from Brazil and he tells me the coffee there is amazing. Where is the best place to get authentic grown Brazilian coffee if I am in the United States?

      Hello, Alec,

      Thanks for you kind words. /// I delayed to answer this comment because, after you and many others had asked, I was writing a generic guide with some ideas about where to dig for Brazilian coffee. The article is not suppose to cover specific areas since it would be impossible to cover that in such a short time, but I do intend investigate more and release more articles with specific information by area. Check it out!

    Thanks for your introduction to Brazil coffee. The post is very helpful.

    I love coffee and love south American coffee. A friend of mine has a coffee cooker he got from his parents, which is made of glass with a coffee bean container and a power plug. Each time when we have a gathering in his studio, he would cook coffee for us. We can see how the water begins to boil and smell the scent of the coffee that warms the room — it always smells better than the actually taste.

    Pity I can’t find such coffee cooker in the market now.

    It would be nice if you can do some review on coffee cookers.
