Process: Natural Anaerobic
This very unique coffee comes to us from Daterra farms, a farm that has become synonymous with quality and innovation in the coffee community, located in the Cerrado region of Brazil. Though Brazil is the highest coffee producing country in the world, very little of the coffee produced is “specialty grade.” Daterra focuses on creating this specialty grade coffee to showcase the unique terroir that Brazil can offer. The Anaerobic Guara is part of what is named the “Masterpiece Collection.” This is the highest title and is reserved for only the highest quality and most unique nano-lots of coffees produced on the farm, and we’re excited to share it with you.
This rare Brazilian coffee tastes similar to a very high quality Colombian coffee, giving us notes of yellow fruit, such as pineapple, with honey, vanilla, and a sugarcane sweetness. We’ve found that brewing on the Kalita wave helps balance this coffee perfectly.
