We are proud to partner with a producer that has such a strong emphasis on sustainability. Daterra’s philosophy is “Growing Relationship Coffee”, because they are in relationship with their land, the people they work with, their community, quality and all their clients across the globe. Daterra, since their beginning in the 80’s, has always been focused on social development and environmental preservation. Daterra has also become a valuable resource for many smaller producing farms, sharing the knowledge that they have acquired after many years of experience in the industry.
This particular lot has been processed in what is known as “Cerrado natural”, which means that the coffee cherry has been left on the tree to fully mature and then dry prior to harvesting it. This process is only feasible in regions where the weather is dry and very predictable, and Cerrado’s unique weather traits are perfect for this process. Coffee's processed in this way typically have a sweeter and more full, heavy body.
