Another thing I have never seen - because of the flat Cerrado landscape, when they go to manually pick the coffee they use these giant supersacks to haul it to the mill. This is a stark contrast to Central America where pickers negotiate steep hillsides with heavy bags loaded with cherry. I have heard of people walking miles to cooperative mills with 60 kg of cherry on their back. Basically, Cerrado is the inverse of Central America fincas in all respects.
