Characteristics: Specially selected green beans are vacuum packed at the farm producing a really fresh tasting coffee with good body and a rich, nutty flavour, complemented with green apple and dark chocolate undertones. Citrus acidity, caramel sweetness and a creamy aftertaste.
'Rainforest Alliance' certified. Produced and processed under strict sustainable standards guaranteeing a consistent cup profile with full traceability.
Further Information: Before a lot is harvested, a sample will be picked, processed and roasted to check taste is as expected. After harvesting, the beans are then sorted- this is done on a specially adapted wet mill, first removing overripe berries, after which drier and natural beans are grouped very specifically by size. The tree-dried beans this coffee comprises of are left to almost fully dry on a large, concrete patio before being finished in a 'Guardiola' to ensure consistency throughout the lot.
Falling within Brasil's famous 'Cerrado' that makes up nearly 23% of the entire country, 'Daterra' are the world’s first 'Grade A Rainforest Certified' farm; over 60% of the land they own is given over to nature reserves helping to sustain and support the area's rich biodiversity.
