Carolina Coffee Roasting Company was formed in 1992 to preserve the fine tradition of small batch coffee roasting. Their esteemed Roast Master has devoted his career to the study of coffee bean cultivation, selection, roasting and blending.
Their Coffees are roasted in small batches. This has several benefits. First and foremost, it ensures that our coffee that leaves the roastery is very fresh. Roasting in small batches also allows precise control over the roasting profile, giving them the ability to perfect each coffee.
They research and select coffees from among the finest quality Arabica beans from Indonesia, South and Central America and Africa. They proudly purchase coffees that contribute to saving delicate ecosystems of coffee growing communities.
Coffee production in Brazil is responsible for about a third of all coffee in the world.
Brazil by far is the world's largest producer of coffee, a position the country has held for the last 150 years. Coffee plantations, covering some 27,000 km2 (10,000 sq mi), are mainly located in the southeastern states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Paraná where the environment and climate provide ideal growing conditions.
The crop first arrived in Brazil in the 18th century and the country had become the dominant producer by the 1840s. Production as a share of world production peaked in the 1920s, with the country supplying 80% of the world's coffee, but has declined since the 1950s due to increased global production.
