About the Brazilian Coffee Beans:
The Geographical Location of Fazenda Da Lagoa is 1,100 m above sea level near the town of Santo Antonio do Amparo, about 170 km southeast of Belo Horizonte in the province of Minas Gerais. The farm of 2,850 ha is comprised of a natural reserve, woodlands, pastures, and 1,500 ha of coffees. Streams from 40 natural springs water the land and gradually converge into two small rivers that mark the borders of the grounds. The Culture of coffee cultivation is more of a lifestyle. With dedication to create excellence coffee, Only Arabica varieties such as Catuaí, Mundo Novo, Acayá and Catucaí have been selected and are grown on the plantation according to strict sustainable principles.

The Farm is also known for its innovative farming approach, which employs modern agricultural techniques based on scientific research carried out on the farm.

About the Colombian Coffee Beans:
Colombian coffees are well known for their consistency. They're smooth rich and so so good. The majority of the coffee is grown on the slopes of the central mountain range under the shade of thorny bamboo & banana trees, helping to give La Manuela a distinctive character. General Manager Fernando Gomez Chica has taken care of the day to day running of the estate for the past 20 years. From picking to processing he has implemented projects to improve productivity and quality of the coffee including improved cleaning & maintenance of machinery and lessons for pickers on how to select the ripest cherries.

The Colombian coffee (fully washed process) in Cafebond Basic Filter Coffee Beans comes from Colombia’s La Plata region. Coffee farming within the region is overwhelmingly small-scale with approximately 80% of producers farm their coffee on less than 3 hectares of land. These small farms are tended by individual families and only very rarely being contracted out, which leads to more thorough and intensive management practices and great pride in the final product – which is, itself, an extension of the family. In early 2014, the farmers in the region establish their own cooperative named Aprocoagrosh, which till date has over 30 growers being part of the group.

Located at between 1000 to 1900 meters above sea level, one has to travel straight up – driving an hour or more into the steep mountains that surround the town center to reach the farms.
