Brazil - O - Rama
Known more as the reigning giant of coffee production for the past 100 years, Brazil has changed its tune recently.

Brazil still produces more coffee, arabica and robusta combined, than any other nation on earth. But producers are learning that coffee drinkers don't buy coffee because it was the cheapest to produce. They buy it because it of cup quality.
