Brazil Daterra Masterpieces D22

Cupping notes

A bass heavy blueberry, violet, winey aroma with a more gamey, intense cup balanced with orange, blueberry and grape.

Description

Falling within Brazils famous Cerrado that makes up nearly 23% of the entire country, Daterra are the worlds 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 it split into many lots, each with a designated agronomist to care for the particular varietal and aspect each lot defines. With over 100 different varietals on their farms, development is tracked and planting paired with appropriate varietal.

The Masterpieces are the pinnacle of each years’ production – experimental processes, new varietals, or a combination of both, all scoring over 90 points and all unique in their own way. The Masterpieces are processed separately to the main coffees. A small micro mill is located on the far side of the drying patio, containing sorting and pulping facilities but also tanks for anaerobic and aerobic fermentation, raised beds with moveable shade netting, and their own warehouse for storage. The segmentation of the farm into blocks – each with their own agronomist monitoring the growth and maturity throughout the season – is great for learning about the new varieties and adding to the field of research but also, somewhat handily, perfect for producing these microlots too! This is truly a farm within a farm.

IPR100 is one of the newer varietals in the line up this year, and is a cross between Catuai, and a Catuai BA-10 hybrid.  The huge point of difference here is that some of its genes are gained from Coffee Liberica. It’s life started back in the late 70’s at the IAC where it was named H8721-8 C1420 EP166, with subsequent generations being selected through various generation s for their resistance to nematodes. IPR100 arose from the F5 and F6 generations with a back crossing from an F7 generation before finally being released 35 years later in 2012.

This coffee is hand picked, and the ripe cherries fermented in an open tank with the naturally occurring yeast from the environment. These are then dried on the patio.
