  • Brazil Fazenda Wagner

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Cerrado growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Delicately acidy but slightly bitter cup displays a subtle but impressive array of aromatic and flavor notes: vanilla and fresh leather in the nose, dry chocolate, flowers, and lemon in the cup.

Notes: Fazenda Wagner, operated by the third generation of the Ferrero family, is located in the Cerrado Mineiro region, at an altitude of 1,080 meters. As a green coffee, a 2001 Brazil Cup of Excellence competition winner. A pulped natural or semi-dry-processed coffee, meaning the skin was removed from the fruit but the fruit pulp was allowed to remain clinging to the beans during drying. The pulped natural method generally produces a low-key but gently bright, often fruity cup. The Coffee Tree Roasters are a quality- oriented retail and wholesale specialty roaster.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy high-toned complexity and light-bodied, dry wines.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
