Behind the coffee Fazenda Lages is a specially selected part of the larger Fazenda Londrina. The Lages plot was created for its quality and unique setting within the farm which displayed themselves in the cup. Fazenda Londrina a 396 hectare farm is one of four farms owned by the Naimeg group, a family business which was headed up by the late founder Gerson Naimeg. Gerson, the son of a German settler and Brazilian mother, established his first farm in 1965 when he bought a small plot of land in Uba located in northern Paraná. Like many others, he and his family moved to the Cerrado to avoid the annual threat of frost and now they have four farms in the region. The combination of altitude, nutrient rich red loam soil and annual 1500mm rainfall provide a perfect balance to grow coffee. The farm produces a split of around 60% Natural and 40 %Pulped Natural coffees each harvest, with varietals such as Rubi, Yellow Catuai, Red Catuai, Mundo Novo & Topiaz.
