Daterra is one of the most sophisticated coffee operations we've ever had the pleasure of visiting. Daterra is located near the city of Patrocinio, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. This is the classic and famed Cerrado region of Brazil, where the fertile land is flat and ideal for coffee growing.

Daterra's beautiful, coffee-producing systems have turned the farm into an intensive network of lots, which are all monitored individually. Many have automated irrigation systems to ensure ideal nutrients and water make it to the plants themselves. 

When it comes time to harvest, Daterra will send members of the team to different lots to evaluate the cherry. They will also harvest small batches to strategize on when to harvest each individual varietal and ensure peak timing. The quality team will then make decisions on how to utilize each of these coffees and where on the menu they will be used.

Daterra is a famed farm that was first purchased in 1976 and, today is an icon in the coffee-producing world. Leading by example, Daterra is the only B Corp certified coffee farm, has more certifications than we have space to list, and is steadily working towards being a climate-positive coffee farm.

Daterra Peaberry is a blend of Tree Dried Natural and Pulped Natural processes. Tree Dried Natural is a process unique to the Cerrado region. The coffee cherry is left on the tree to dry. Due to the dry climate, it can avoid the risk of fungus and microorganisms. The Pulped Natural component is mechanically demucilated.
