Explore the tasting notes of a single origin specialty coffee sourced from Brazil freshly roasted in our coffee lab, at Meron Roastery. Here is some cool info about the coffee and the farm.


The farm/farmer

Daterra, meaning “from the earth”, is a well-known producer and exporter of coffee from Brazil. Located in the Cerrado region, the farm benefits from the perfect growing conditions for Arabica, having a stable climate with dry-cold winters and hot-humid summers. Since 1976, Daterra has focused on premium coffees, combining sustainability with state-of-the-art technology. Sustainability is not their slogan, but more than that, it is a real commitment that Daterra has made themselves, they are the first farm supported by the rainforest alliance in Brazil. Basically, they are active leaders in the coffee industry due to sustainable practices and innovation.


About the coffee

Also known as “Cerrado natural”, this processing method refers to the fact that the coffee cherries are left on the trees for a longer time, thus ensuring the ripening and drying process of the cherries still attached to the branch. This technique is only possible if the weather is dry and stable during the harvest – more precisely, if this method of tree drying were applied in other regions, there would be problems: excessive moisture can lead to the development of different kinds of fungi or microorganisms. Thanks to the unique characteristics of the weather in the Cerrado, this method is possible – which is great, because it comes with equally good characteristics in the cup: natural coffees dried directly in the trees develop high body and an extra-intense sweetness.
