The Cerrado is a high, semi-arid plateau surrounding the city of Patrocinio, midway between Sao Paulo and Brasilia. The Cerrado consists of grassy savannah, scrub lands, and gallery forest. It is the least picturesque of the three regions with its new towns and high plains, but arguably the most promising in terms of coffee quality, since it’s dependably clear, dry weather during harvest promotes a more thorough, even drying of the coffee fruit. It is a newer growing area – coffee has been grown in the Cerrado for about 40 years and now supports around 3000 farms, mostly in small holdings. The soil in the Cerrado is quite lean and requires fertilization. Coffee production in this region is highly mechanized, with little hand picking. The flat terrain lends itself to machine harvesting, as do the sharply defined wet and dry seasons, which result in most coffee trees ripening simultaneously. This synchronized ripening is further choreographed by targeted irrigation. Most of the farms in the Cerrado are at least partially irrigated. Because of the natural habitat, the Cerrado has few trees; the coffee is grown in the sun.
