Turning Point

This exclusive nano lot gives us a tropical vibe thanks to its anaerobic processing. It is multi layered and complex with an intense mouthfeel and lots of exotic fruit flavours like sweet pineapple, passion fruit and papaya. As it cools, exotic floral aromas and subtle grape notes unfold, leaving a fine winey aftertaste.

About this Coffee

Auction Lot:
We were very enthusiastic when we cupped the Masterpiece auction lots from the Daterra farm at the end of last year, and even more so when it came to the cup with VIRADA. The cup was so outstanding that we bet on it at the auction and were over the moon when we were the lucky winners. So here it is, a true masterpiece of cultivation and processing.

Virada (turning point)
But why is this lot called Virada? Virada means 'turning point', and in the remarkable year of 2003, fascinating things happened and the hard work paid off for Daterra, marking a 'turning point' in the farm's history. That year, Daterra became the first Brazilian farm to be certified by the Rainforest Alliance. They worked with the RA to develop a model for sustainable farms in Brazil that did not exist at the time, and finally de commoditised their coffee.

Laurina is native to the Reunion Islands and is also known as Bourbon LC or Bourbon Pointu due to its conical tree shape. The small and pointed beans contain less caffeine than other Arabica varieties and its delicate nature.

Whole ripe cherries are placed in a stainless steel fermentation tank fitted with an Anairlock valve - this system allows oxygen to pass out of the tank and prevents anything getting in. As the cherries ferment, they release CO2 and because carbon dioxide is denser than oxygen, the lighter gas is forced out through the valve. After a few hours, the tank environment becomes completely anaerobic, allowing certain microorganisms the perfect conditions for fermentation and enzymatic reactions to take place inside the beans. The coffee cherries are then dried with their skins as a naturals.

The Cerrado Region:
The Daterra farms, located in the town of Patroc Ãnio, are the oldest coffee plantations in Brazil's Cerrado region, one of the best coffee growing areas in the country. Constant climate, dry fresh winters, warm humid summers. The wind, sun and soil are exceptional for Arabica trees. The different altitudes and microclimates create conditions that later surprise the palate with a wide range of flavours, from velvety chocolate to bright floral profiles.

The Producer:
Daterra Estate is one of the world's most renowned coffee plantations in Brazil, where coffee is produced with the aim and maxim of absolute quality and sustainability. All coffees from the farms belonging to the Daterra Estate have also been certified by the Rainforest Alliance since 2003. This means that the coffee is grown on farms where forests, rivers and soils are protected and wildlife is preserved. The farmers receive fair wages and access to medical care and education.

Masterpieces Auction Collection
Each year the masterful cuppers search the vast potential of Daterra for unique small lots of coffee, the Masterpieces.
This very "small farm" is a laboratory where they test new ways of producing coffee. The laboratory is rich in new and unusual varieties, processing methods, drying techniques and endless experiments. They have a unique cup profile and score of 88+, are fully traceable, planted and grown with history and can never be replicated.
