Daterra Masterpieces 2022 Auction

The 2022 Daterra Masterpieces Auction takes place on the 29th November 2022. This year’s auction is inspired by the modernist movement of Brazil. Each of the coffees on the auction pays homage to a legendary modernist artist who portrayed the beauty and diversity of Brazil.

There are 12 individual lots available at the auction, each one with its distinctive profile and design.

As with all the Masterpieces Auctions, we are here to help however you want to get involved.

Learn more about Daterra here.

How do I taste the coffee?

We receive one sample box of Daterra Masterpieces each year, which means we have limited sample material. The best way to taste the coffee before the auction is by purchasing a sample set directly from Daterra.

Each sample set contains 200 grams of each coffee and an art magazine they have developed for the coffees. Ikawa roast profiles are also available for each lot. We have tasted the coffees in our lab, so ask a member of the DRW trade team for more info.

Sample sets are available to purchase directly from Daterra for $260.

Daterra Masterpieces 22

What lots are available?

Each year Daterra’s expert cuppers explore the farm’s harvest to discover unique small lots of coffee – the Daterra Masterpieces.

The 2022 auction features 12 coffees made in their experimental processing unit Masterapac.

This year they are introducing a new fermentation technique – a refrigerated anaerobic process -and advancing their research of foreign genetics with Datopia: a mix of ethiopian varietals cultivated in Daterra. Each coffee is accompanied by a digital illustration generated with artificial intelligence, as a representation of the flavours found in coffee and the artist that inspired it.
