Daterra Farms Auction Lot Iara - 1 lb
This is a very special coffee. bid on and won several lots in Daterra's 2017 auction.  Our first release is Iara, this coffee is limited to
approximately 135 lbs.  It is available in 1/2 lb and 1 lb bags.


The mermaid Iara is the queen and protector of rivers. She usually appears late in the afternoon - half woman, half fish, combing her long hair with a gold comb. She usually bathes in the rivers and sings beautiful melodies. The men who see her cannnot resist her beauty and jump into the water. The victims follow Iara to the bottom of the rivers and disappear forever. The few who manage to come back end up going crazy with the power of Iara's spell. The natives believe so much in the power of the Iara, that to this day, that they avoid passing near the lakes at dusk.

Daterra Estate is one of the world-famous farms in Brazil where the coffee is produced with an inspiring commitment to both quality and sustainability. All Daterra Farms coffees have been Rainforest Alliance certified since 2003 which means coffee is grown on farms where forests, rivers and soils are protected, wildlife is conserved; workers are paid decent wages and given access to medical care and education.
Each year our masterful Cuppers search the vast potential of Daterra for unique small lots of coffee, Our Masterpieces.

This very small farm is a lab, where we test new ways of producing coffee. The lab is rich with new and unusual varietals, processing methods, drying techniques and limitless experiments. Each coffee has an unique cup profile and scores 88+, is fully traceable, planted and grown with history and can never be replicated.

The Paraiso varietal is another gem from our experimental field. It is a crossbreed between Yellow Catuai and Timor Hybrid.

This is Daterra's first Paraiso crop. The cherries were left a little longer on the trees, reaching a raisin stage. They were later taken to a patio to dry under the sun for 1 day.

The Iara has very exotic profile, presenting intense roses and spices, specially black pepper and fruits, with a rich and creamy body.
