Daterra Low Caffeine Reserve by Daterra Masterpiece series!
Our Reserve Lot was produced with two low caffeine varietals: Laurina and Aramosa. They naturally contain less than half the regular caffeine levels. Which makes them absolutely rare.
At Daterra Coffees, just 1% of all their coffee blends is produced in microlots. Masterpiece blends are sold in an auction, promoted by the farm every year, in November. In 2018, the Frevo blend, for example, became the most expensive Brazilian coffee in history. With little more than 72 kg available, that lot was sold for US$ 141.10 per libra (450 g) to importers from Spain and Canada.
Made from the Laurina variety and processed with the Semi-Carbonic Maceration fermentation technique, that coffee achieved great highlight after being utilized in the presentation made by barista Emi Fukahori, the Swiss contender who won the World Brewers Cup international competition in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais.
The microlots are produced totally separate in the experimental farm, which has suspended terraces, dryers and fermentation tanks. Here, coffees are selected to be part of the Masterpiece collection menu.
The Masterpiece brand includes blends with a score above 88 points, produced in the Experimental farm, which is inside the very property, but which is fully equipped to operate separately from Daterra’s remaining coffee production facilities. They use their own machines, suspended farmyards and fermentation tanks, similar to Colombian ones, built more than seven years ago, when they started researching.
Microlots are produced using experimental coffees and unique varieties such as Gesha, Laurina, Catuaí, Mundo Novo, among others. Around 150 bags are produced every year. They are vacuum-packed, in a packaging designed and patented by Daterra Coffees, called Pentabox.
It is a true honor to work with such producer and a pure joy to roast this coffee for you guys!
