Daterra is one of the most sophisticated coffee operations we've ever had the pleasure of visiting. Located nearby to 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 proven ideal for coffee.
Also known as "Cerrado natural", this process means that 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 processing technique is only possible if the weather is very dry and stable during harvest - in fact, in many regions, allowing the coffee to dry on the tree could be a big problem: the excess moisture can develop fungus and other microorganisms. Because of Cerrados’s unique traits, this process is possible - which is great because it brings very positive attributes to the cup: tree-dried naturals usually show heavy bodies< and extra-intense sweetness. /p>
