Arguably Brazil's Daterra Farms runs the world's most thorough, soup-to-nuts turnkey coffee operation, from seed to cup. Their Penta system assures quality control in every stage of development and the results are stunning, organically produced and Rainforest Alliance®-certified coffees. Sweet Blue is produced from exclusively Mundo Novo cultivar, which for single origin espresso offers a near-perfect balance of mouthfeel, acidity, chocolatey sweetness. We are bringing back a small quantity of this year's harvest which will arrive at the roastery mid-week (Feb. 13th). With permission of Sweet Maria's you can read a lot about this estate and see archival photos taken by Thompson Owen in his exhaustive trek of their operation from several years ago.
