  • Brazil Fazenda Lagoa Pulped Natural

Roast: Medium Review Date: May 2002
Origin: Sul de Minas growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A delightfully sweet, balanced, deeply dimensioned coffee complicated by clean cocoa tones in the nose and floral and fruit notes in the cup.

Notes: Fazenda Lagoa, meaning "Lake Farm" in Portugese, is located in the classic Brazilian growing region of south Minas Gerais. This coffee is 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 Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.

Who Should Drink It: Light-hearted romantics--a profile as subtle and bright as it is exotic.
