For this year’s Daterra masterpieces they won’t be holding an auction, but instead each box will have a fixed price and a third of the profits from each bag sold will be donated to charity.
From Daterra. “We think that holding an auction at this time does not match with the message of support we are sending, and we want to make our coffees more accessible to everyone at a time when many are also facing a financial crisis”.
About this year’s Masterpieces
This year there are thirty microlots, with three new varietals and more experimental processes. The 30 different lots are split into different sizes and the prices will be fixed and range between £30-70/kg.
Also, if you would like for us to buy a lot/s for you, we can consolidate with one of our containers, saving you money on freight.
How we will be showcasing the coffees?
Every day next week (w/c 9th November) we will be cupping the lots and posting short videos about what we’re tasting.
Check out our Instagram at 9am and 12noon every day.
