Brazil Fazenda Lagoa Pulped Natural
|Roaster Location:||Kansas City, Missouri|
|Review Date:||May 2002|
A delightfully sweet, balanced, deeply dimensioned coffee complicated by clean cocoa tones in the nose and floral and fruit notes in the cup.
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.
