The air is filled with dark berry notes on the break as the cupper floats into a cup bursting with cherries and black currants mingled with pecans cloaked in syrupy sweetness. The intensity of the experience is illuminated by low acidity and a heavy yet clean mouthfeel.

Our Brazil Reserve is the highest quality specialty coffee available and is graded strictly soft.

In the cup, this combination features dark chocolate and ripe oranges with a hint of dried cherries and a heavy body.

The Cerrado Region

Steady climate, dry-fresh winters, warm-wet summers. Dry winds in pleasantly hot days and refreshingly cool nights. Sounds like the dream place for one’s vacation. In fact it is the perfect condition for amazing beans to be grown. This is what you find in the region where Daterra farms are located.

Our 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. All plantations are located at an average altitude of over 3.000 ft and some terroirs are around 4.000 ft.

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.

Coffee connoisseurs and world barista champions often visit the farms, and we work together to learn innovative processes for coffee cherries and creating new micro-lots of exceptional coffees.


Sustainable agriculture was still quite unknown for Brazil at the time we started our coffee endeavors. How can one take something from earth without harming it? Simple: we borrow it, and then we give back.

It is not only about producing the best coffee of the world. It is about producing coffee for a better world.
