The Mae dOuro (Mother of Gold, in free translation), the legend says, is a beautiful woman with golden hair thar reflects sunlight and always wears a white dress. The story says that Mae dOuro is able to transform into a shining fireball to protect natural resources. This ball hovers over gold mines, alerting miners that those places are protected and should not be exploited for profit. The story also says that Mae dOuro protects that women who are mistreated by their husbands – the Mae dOuro lures bad men into a cave and locks them up there forever aqu

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.

Laurina is a rare varietal from the Reunion Islands, also known as Bourbou Pointu. Laurina stands out for its excellent drink profile and for its natural low caffeine content. 
To create Mae dOuro, we placed the pulped beans inside a stainless-steel tank in the processes know as semi-carbonic fermentation - this technique is a variation of our semi-carbonic maceration, where the cherries are fermented. By fermenting the beans in a hermetic environment, new flavors are achieved due to the intra-cellular fermentation.
