Altitude: 1000 - 1200 masl
Harvest: May - September
Tasting notes: stone fruits, blueberry, plum, caramell
A complex and beautifully bright coffee. On the break the cupper experiences delicate floral and slight citrus notes that reveal themselves as the coffee develops in the cup. A sweet citrus-like acidity makes the body of this coffee glisten with flavors of sweet mandarin, rich dark chocolate and caramel. The finish is filled with high notes of sweet fruits and bittersweet chocolate.
Daterra farms in the city of Patrocínio are the oldest coffee plantations in Brazilian Cerrado region, and it is amongst the best coffee producing areas in the country. Wind, sun and soil are exceptional for Arabica trees. The diverse altitudes and microclimates create conditions that will later surprise the palate with a large range of flavors from velvet-chocolaty to bright-flowery profiles.
An elegant and refined fully natural coffee begins its journey at the peak of the harvest when the cherries are filled with honey-like liquor. The beans start drying on the tree, then transferred in cherry to the patio, until the honey is almost dissolved. The drying is finished in the dryer to insure consistent moisture content and stabilization of the beans. The ripe fruit aromatics and exotic flavors of stone fruits, blueberry and plum make for a succulent juicy mouthfeel reminiscent of a fine wine. Full bodied with a clean caramel-fruity finish that smoothly rolls over the palate.
