Daterra Farms Peaberry Pearl: (Pulp Natural)
Daterra is a very interesting farm in Brazil, very high tech. They take a blending approach similar to scotch producers. Their aim is to have consistency based on changing the blend components. The sorting process shows how technology can be implemented into coffee. Not many, if any, other farms have this level of commitment.
Daterra's plantations are located at an average altitude of 3,800 ft (1,150 m) under a stable temperature of around 70ºF (25ºC), which constitutes the perfect environment for Arabica Coffee production. Furthermore, the dry season during the harvest makes this region unique for the best Arabica coffees.
The plantations, settled in different areas, are divided into 215 mini- farms and further subdivided into 2.816 blocks called "quadras", each of which is planted with a specific coffee variety.
This plantation system ensures accurate monitoring and constant traceability of each quadra's historic track of rainfall, cultivation procedures and productivity.
This full bodied (very textured) blend of pulped natural coffees offers up a very sweet milk chocolate, pecan, and blueberry. Long lasting sweet finish due to the palate coating.
LIST OF VARITIES AT FARM:
Typica - original natural coffee from Ethiopia.
Bourbon - mutant of Typica from the Island of Bourbon.

Peace and cheers!
