Falling within Brazils famous Cerrado that makes up nearly 23% of the entire country, Daterra are the world’s first grade A rainforest certified farm of any business, and a walk around the trees will reveal a stunning array of birds and wildlife, from toucans and burrowing owls to squirrel monkeys and maned wolves. Over 60% of the land they own is given over to nature reserves. The farm itself is split into many lots, each with a designated agronomist to care for the particular varietal and aspect each lot can define. With over 100 different varietals on their farms, progress is tracked, and planting paired with appropriate varietal.
Selective mechanical picking is common in Brazil and occurs typically with 40- 60% ripe coffee on the tree, with 5% green, 10% underripe, and the rest tree dried. A sample will be picked, processed and roasted to check taste is as expected, before the order is given to pick the specific lot. Sorting is done on a specially adapted wet mill, first with density sorting that removes overripes, then with the drier and natural beans being sorted very specifically by size from each lot. The tree dried beans this coffee comprises of are left to almost fully dry on a large concrete patio before then being finished in a Guardiola to ensure consistency throughout the lot.
This coffee works fantastically well in all brewing equipment, including espresso / cappuccino machines, cafetiere pots, paper / metal filter brewers, and Turkish brewers.
