Brazil coffee beans. Daterra Coffee.

Daterra is one of the most sophisticated coffee operations we know of. It is located near 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 ideal for coffee growing.

Daterra’s beautiful coffee-producing systems have turned the farm into an intensive network of lots, all monitored individually. Many have automated irrigation systems to ensure ideal nutrients and water make it to the plants themselves.

When it comes time to harvest, Daterra will send members of the team to different lots to evaluate the cherry and will harvest small batches to strategize on when to harvest each individual varietal and ensure peak timing. The quality team will then make decisions on how to utilize each of these coffees and where on the menu they will be used.

The Daterra menu is vast, with three tiers of offerings available, of which Forward Coffee is proud to be the exclusive Canadian distributor. The three tiers are Masterpieces, Collections and Classics.

Each menu tier has a wide array of coffee sub-brands represented within. Each of these sub-brands holds a flavour profile the quality team works tirelessly each year to consistently match and replicate, using combinations of coffee processes and varietals on the farm that work to that build. Think about it like a blend on a roaster’s menu, putting components together to make something that’s greater than the sum of its parts.

This is a famed farm that was first purchased in 1976 and, today is an icon in the coffee-producing world. Leading by example, Daterra is one of the only B Corp certified coffee farms, has more certifications than we have space to list, and is steadily working towards being a climate-positive coffee farm.

About the Region

Brazil is the largest country in South America. Above all, it has a lot of variety. Consequently, one can produce coffee anywhere from mountainous areas where hand-picking occurs to flat landmasses with high demand for crop production– meaning there’s always something happening here. Along with this vastness are regions with huge differences: some have farms producing only 30 bags per year while others produce tens or even thousands at once on flat land near coastal areas. The Cerrado region alone covers 210,000 hectares of coffee farms!
