Cerrado Region in Brazil
The coffee comes from the savannah region „Cerrado“ in the state of Minas Gerais. On the one hand Brazil is known for nutty, chocolaty coffees, on the other hand the country struggles with an image of mass and monoculture coffee cultivation. Therefore, it was very important for us to find a sustainable partner on site, which meets our ideals.
When purchasing our green coffees, we are guided by 7 purchasing criteria,that we have set as our goal.
Near the city of Patrocínio is the farm „Daterra – sustainable coffee“, which has already won numerous awards in the field of sustainability. We were convinced by the farm team with their great passion for sustainability and coffee. Together with universities, they have been researching innovative and sustainable cultivation concepts for many years to bring agriculture into harmony with nature. With Daterra, we have a trade relationship on an equal footing. For our Cerrado coffee we use a variety of Daterra, which consists of the varieties Catuai, Mundo Novo and Bourbon, which are processed using the pulped natural method. (A mistake has crept in on the label of the coffee, the coffee was not washed but pulped natural processed) This gives the coffee a very nice chocolaty note and it is very low in acidity.
