Next day; A coffee lecture at Caccer offices, discussing the methods of cultivation and processing used in Cerrado. They call Cerrado the "nose of MInas Gerais" because of the way it protrudes out, bordered by 2 rivers; the Rio Grande and Paranaiba. Cerrado is unique among coffee growing regions of Brasil - it has a weather pattern with a dry "continental" influence coming from the West, whereas other regions align in a corridor parallel to the coast and have an easterly "maritime" weather pattern.
