Daterra is one of the most sophisticated coffee operations we've ever had the pleasure of visiting. Located nearby to the city of Patrocinio, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. This is the classic and famed Cerrado region of Brazil, where the fertile land is flat and proven ideal for coffee.
There is beauty in the systems that Daterra has established to produce their coffee. They've turned the farm into an intensive network of lots, all monitored individually, many with automated irrigation systems to ensure ideal nutrients and water are making it to the plants themselves
This is a famed farm that was first purchased in 1976 and today is an icon in the coffee producer world. Leading by example, Daterra is the only B Corp certified coffee farm, has more certifications than we have space to list, and is working toward being a climate positive coffee farm, ensuring they are positively contributing to the climate.
Full Bloom is an elegant and refined fully natural coffee begins its journey at the peak of the harvest when the cherries are filled with honey-like liquor. The beans start drying on the tree, then transferred in cherry to the patio, until the honey is almost dissolved. The drying is finished in the dryer to insure consistent moisture content and stabilization of the beans. The ripe fruit aromatics and exotic flavors of stone fruits, blueberry and plum make for a succulent juicy mouthfeel reminiscent of a fine wine. Full bodied with a clean caramel-fruity finish that smoothly rolls over the palate.
