The coffee plant was not native to the Americas. By the early 1700’s, coffee was already developing into a major cash crop. The Portuguese colonists wanted to participate. According to legend, Francisco de Melo Palheta was sent to neighboring French Guiana on a diplomatic mission to resolve a border dispute. Palheta managed to smuggle coffee seeds into Brazil by seducing the governor’s wife who gave him a bouquet laced with the seeds. Coffee thrived in Brazil. Today, Brazil is the largest producer of coffee accounting for about one-third of the world’s production.
