Description

In the Cerrado of Brazil coffee farms are noticeable on the landscape as giant circular plantings under the long boom of an irrigation system, linked by perfectly spaced rows for the mechanical pickers to drive up and down.

Minas Gerais is a constant in coffee offerings for a reason. The consistency of its classic tasting coffees make it integral in many a roasters offerings. This lot is no different, grown in an area under Rainforest Alliance practices that means it’s impact on the environment is as good as its taste. The farm is mainly given over to natural planting, with coffee in between. It’s common to see toucans, monkeys and a host of other wildlife moving through the farm. Jaguars and Maned wolves have also been spotted, and a waterfall splits the terrain providing watering holes.

Beans are picked mechanically, with detailed care and attention paid to ensure only the selected grade make it through. The slightly smaller bean size requires the care and attention that the processors of this coffee are so good at. Savannah may not be Daterra by name, but their deft touch in processing ability still shows.
