Brazil Fazenda Lagoa Natural
|Roaster Location:||Kansas City, Missouri|
|Review Date:||May 2002|
Blind Assessment: Sweet, low-key, gentle. Displays muted musty/mildew tones that, combined with the essential sweetness of the coffee, read agreeably as malt or dry spice.
Notes: This coffee, from the classic Brazilian growing region of south Minas Gerais, is a natural dry-processed coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the coffee fruit rather than after removal of the fruit, as in the wet process. 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: Should please acidity-avoiders with its subtle, malty sweetness.
