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-producing world. Leading by example, Daterra is the only B Corp certified coffee farm, has more certifications than we have space to list, and is steadily working towards being a climate-positive coffee farm.
Full Bloom is a Tree Dried Natural process. Tree Dried Natural is a process unique to the Cerrado region, where the coffee cherry is left on the tree to dry. Due to the dry climate, it can avoid the risk of fungus and microorganisms.
