Pocos de Caldas is a region about 100 miles north of Sao Paolo, known for both its coffee and its mineral spring spas. It is very fertile and the green hills of the region are covered with coffee farms, with a predominantly volcanic soil base.
Relatively high altitudes (3300 ft) and cool winter temperatures allow the coffee cherries to grow slowly, concentrating a more complex flavor profile.
Peaberry coffees are very rare, occurring in only 5% or less crops, and are associated in particular with Tanzania, although obviously in this case, can be found in other regions too. A peaberry type coffee bean is one where the coffee cherry has a single bean inside it rather than the more common two beans. It is more oval or pea shaped, rather than looking like half an oval as most coffee beans do. It is suggested that peaberry type beans make for a more complex and acidic coffee, with a slightly lighter body.
