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.
This place of exceptional beauty is a haven for diverse flora and numerous animals. To conserve this natural environment and preserve its ecological balance for future generations, all activities on the farm are carefully monitored. Sustainable principles guide all cultivation and processing practices on the farm. By protecting healthy soils and rivers and producing sustainable coffee, Fazenda da Lagoa aims to be an inspiring partner to its neighboring rural communities.
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. Only Arabica varieties such as Catuaí, Mundo Novo, Acayá and Catucaí have been selected and are grown in the plantation nursery according to strict sustainable principles.
