Even in Brazil, a country with a long coffee tradition, the history of Fazenda da Lagoa is one that stands out. The roots of Fazenda da Lagoa can be traced back to the second half of the eighteenth century when Portuguese settlers built a little chapel on the bank of the Amparo River and put up fences around the area that is today’s farm. The knowledge of how to produce one of Brazil’s most outstanding coffees has been passed down from generation to generation. 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.
Streams from 40 natural springs water the land and gradually converge into two small rivers that mark the borders of the grounds. This place of exceptional beauty is a haven for diverse flora and numerous animals. Sustainable principles guide all cultivation and processing practices on the farm.
At Fazenda Da Lagoa, coffee cultivation is much more than a business it’s a lifestyle. Several generations have been dedicated to creating excellent coffees for the pleasure of people all over the globe.
