Cupping notes

Cocoa, citrus, cedar nuts and caramelized sugar


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.

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 are separated at initial sorting then placed for 24 hours on a large concrete patio before being finished in a drum drier, or Guardiola, to ensure consistency throughout the lot.

The Pertu coffee is 100% Pulped. This process is mechanically made – meaning they can remove the mucilage around the beans without fermenting them on water. This is done under pressurised jets of water with different pressures able to remove differnt stages of ripeness and so deliver very precise results. Pulped coffees usually present bright acidity with flavors of citric and sweet fruits.
