MONTE CRISTO, BRAZIL

Daterra is recognized as one of the most advanced and consistent producers of quality coffee in the world. Over the past 35 years they have worked to track every single part of the process their coffee goes through and how each step affects cup quality. Daterra is also known for their commitment to sustainable farming: they maintain Rainforest Alliance Certification and have set aside more than half of their farm—3,250 hectares—as a nature preserve. Daterra’s success has also enabled them to do revolutionary things for their workers. They provide profit sharing to all their employees as well as free day care and health care. Daterra is setting the standard for producing quality coffee without sacrificing care for the environment or their employees.

Consistent quality is how Daterra built their name, and they’ve done it through tracking and logging all the details. They closely monitor the rainfall on every part of their farm, along with which varietals are grown where. They then process the coffee using state-of-the-art milling equipment, and sort out defects using gravity sorting, optical sorting and UV color testing. After the coffees have been processed they begin rigorous rounds of cupping, and assemble lots based on flavor profile. All of these efforts result in superb and consistent quality year after year. We love the full body and lasting sweetness of this naturally processed lot.

Micro-lots:

Available for limited times in small quantities, our carefully curated micro-lots are single origin coffees at their purest. Not only are the beans sourced from one farm, they're sourced from one micro-lot of land on that farm, ensuring a highly consistent flavor and experience. This is a wonderful way to sample the true, amazing potential of coffee. We've selected these lots despite their small quantity because we see something in them that's truly special--and we think you will, too.

Single Origins:

True to their name, single origin coffees consist of beans sourced from a farm or community in one, specific region. Seasonal selections from around the world, our line of single origin coffees focuses on the highest quality product from coffee producers who take their work as seriously as we do.

Blends:

Handcrafted from exceptional single origin coffees, our signature blends are carefully developed in our Hudson Valley roastery to please drinkers day after day, year round.

Offering exceptional flavor to coffee lovers who prefer to go without the caffeine, our Decaf selections stay true to taste with carefully blended, naturally water-processed decaffeinated coffees.
