Fazenda da Lagoa is situated 1,100 meters above sea level near the town of Santo Antonio do Amparo, about 170 kilometers southeast of Belo Horizonte in the province of Minas Gerais. Its 2,850 hectares include a natural reserve, woodlands, pastures and 1,500 hectares of coffees. Streams from 40 natural springs provide water to the land and gradually converge into two small rivers that mark the borders of the grounds and are the water source for the closest large town. Only Arabica varieties such as Catuai, Mundo Novo, Acaya, and Catucai have been selected and are grown in the plantation nursery according to strict sustainable principles.

While Fazenda da Lagoa honors its 200-year-old coffee tradition, it is also known for its innovative farming approaches, which include modern agricultural techniques that are based on scientific research that's carried out on the farm and shared with the wider community.

Cupping notes: Well-rounded acidity, good body, pleasant sweetness, good complexity, soft nutty characteristics, chocolate notes.

This is one of my new favorites. Smooth and reliably tasty at a light to medium roast.

This coffee was off the charts. I did it at a medium roast, I play with different roasts and the best to me was right at second crack. This coffee was bright and really filled the cup even for a dark roast guy. I’ll definitely be back!

First time roaster. Started with this because of the price. Even with my rookie status, this made some good coffee! I'll definitely purchase this again. I'll likely upgrade quality of beans as I improve as a roaster. Probably my only suggestion would be a shipping adjustment, if possible. It kinda stinks to have great price on beans but have to pay more for the shipping than what the beans cost.

I roasted these pretty dark, well into the second crack, using a drum based outdoor converted grille type roaster. I use for a single origin espresso and my wife uses for drip. It works well for both. The espresso is very smooth with a nice medium body and some sweetish, cinnamon nut flavors. It’s what I expect from a good Fazenda. Recommended!

I don't excel at cupping notes, but I do know what I enjoy and this bean roasted to full city is tasty. My first reaction was I tasted chocolate, low acidity with no after taste. I've only roasted 30 or 40 small roasts in my short time as I try to find my "gotta have bean" this one makes the list of buy more. As of this date every state except Florida and both Carolinas have snow on the ground, CBC was hit hard with ice and cold. I placed an order just as the ice was hitting them, UPS and all other shippers pulled their vehicles from the road, CBC's customer service has been amazing, you guys ROCK!

I bought this on sale--first 3 lbs and then 25 lbs. It would be a bargain at its regular price, but at the sale price? Couldn't pass it up. I'm using a Behmor drum roaster. I preheat it to 275-300 and then roast 12 oz on manual (P4). (Although the Behmor claims a capacity of 16 oz, I find that the beans roast unevenly; 12 works better for me.) I like dark roasts, so I take it into second crack before I start the cool cycle--about 18 or 19 minutes for these beans. I like to let the beans rest for at least 2 days. Three days is even better. I blend it with African or Indonesian beans and some Robusta for espresso. I like to roast each type of bean separately and then blend the roasted beans.

This coffee is wonderful for the price. Never purchased a coffee I didn’t like from CBC. I always buy on sale and this one was excellent. Delicious cup!

Great coffee. I have the hardest time timing the cut off after / during second crack. In my experience, there is a very fine line between french roast and french roast plus / charcoal. But...with this bea, we actually dont mind the extra dark roast.

It’s ok. Roasts well to a medium dark, but not a lot of body.

CBC ran a great sale on this bean. I have really enjoyed roasting this coffee. My family enjoys the characteristics of the bean as well. This was a great buy on a great coffee.

This is November 2018. I was in Brazil in October and was only able to purchase one bag of beans (already roasted) at the airport. But, the coffee I tasted while in Brazil was decent every day, every place. Okay, once, it seemed they were a little off their game, but most days it was good coffee. Now, to this bean. I never tried it before, but now I have, as a medium roast, and found it to be a flavorful cup of coffee. I'd order it again, but not yet, because I've got a lot of coffee to roast before I need more. I would advise anyone reading this not to buy it, then there will be an overstock of it, they will put it on sale, and I'll get it at a reduced price.

One of my go to coffees. First crack roast produces a very well balanced medium body coffee with good depth, low acidity an no lingering after tasted. This is the bean I put down for weekend guests.
