For the Tupi natives, Ruda is the god of love - he lives on the clouds and awakens love in the heart of mankind. The legend says that, in the beginning of the world, there was only darkness, so the sun Guaraci was created. One day, Guaraci got very tired of shining a light on the world and needed a rest. When Guaraci closed his eyes, he noticed that the world went black. In order to shine a light in the night, Guaraci created the moon, Jaci. She was so beautiful that Guaraci immediately fell in love with her – but every time he opened his eyes to see her, the day rose and she disappeared. Guaraci asked his father Tupa, to create a messenger to tell the moon how much Guaraci loved her. Tupa created Ruda, the Messenger of love who knew no darkness or light. Every night, Ruda tells Jaci how in love the sun is with her.
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.
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 know as Bourbou Pointu. Laurina stands out for its excellent drink profile and for its natural low caffeine content.
To create Rudá, we placed the cherries inside a stainless-steel tank in the processes know as semi-carbonic maceration. By fermenting the cherries rather than pulped beans, new flavors are achieved due to the intra-cellular fermentation.
