Brazil Fazenda Lagoa Natural
|Kansas City, Missouri
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.
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.
