Daterra was born out of the vision of one man to create excellence. Excellence in environmental and economic sustainability and above all else, excellence in quality. This vision has become a reality, being the first Rainforest certified farm in Brazil and later becoming the first ‘A’ grade certified farm for sustainability in the world. From the organic farm on site that is used in the meals they provide their workers, reusable pouches and regular filtered water taps that help to reduce plastic consumption, to the work with local schools, colleges, and universities, the breadth of their ambition is clearly visible.
The quality of coffee Daterra produce is second to none, and their constant pursuit of perfection yields brilliant and at times surprising results. Producing three key core ranges, the ‘Classics’ are just that, the best representatives of Cerrado coffee with the benefits of Daterra quality. They score 80-86 points. The ‘Collection’ is the higher scoring, 86-89 point coffees from the current menu. They are the best coffees from their plantations and are completely processed using the Daterra Penta Process®. Lastly, they have the ‘Masterpieces’, The very “small farm” lab, where new ways of producing coffee are tested. The lab is rich with new and unusual varietals, processing methods, drying techniques and limitless experiments. They have unique cup profile and score 88+, fully traceable, and are planted and grown with history and can never be replicated.
