Daterra (natural) - Brazil | espresso
FUDGE & RAISIN
The Summer Solstice is a lot processed as "Cerrado natural", meaning that the cherries were left on the trees for a longer time, allowing them to go through the full maturation process and dry while still attached to the branch. This gives you a bittersweet fudgy and well-balanced cup with low acidity and flavours of raisin, tropical fruit, plum and caramel.

A farm like no other, this is the second year we work with Daterra, a well-known coffee grower located in the Cerrado region, amongst the best coffee producing areas in Brazil. They benefit from perfect conditions for arabicas with a steady climate, dry-fresh winters and warm-wet summers. Daterra is renowned for its sustainability investments but most of all hyper focused on quality, experimenting with many new non-indigenous coffee varieties being tested in the farm.
