Daterra Brazil, came today

Today we received a quite large shipment from one of our oldest collaborators:

The Daterra farm in Brazil !

It is their latest crop of Daterra Sweet Collection that is now in our hands. It started snowing just before and during our unloading and that goes very well with the taste of this coffee, it felt like it was snowing sugar.

Before we forget-thank you Chris for helping carrying tons today. Chris M White is a an extremely nice friend to have when you are anxiuos to get things done. Having Kiwis carrying brazilian coffee is a good mix.

When you often get the chance to taste good coffee, you tend to descibe it sweet. In fact, it is good idea to be a bit reserved with the expression "sweet" when you taste speciality coffee on a high level, just because that most good coffees have a sweetness (for example, we know norwegian cuppers who have banned the word from their sessions just because it is somewhat general sometimes).

But this won´t stop us from bringing out what is remarkable about Daterra and their Sweet Collection. There are actually many things that makes this coffee what it is, and it has many nuances that caracterizes it.

We won´t talk about that this time- we take the liberty to be simpleminded for once.
It is sweet.
When we cupped this crop, we actually concluded that we never had tasted anything sweeter. It will be slighty different now that we are going to try it out in larger scale. We are still confident that this will be an extrodinary experience.
Casper was on fire when he came home after his trip to Daterra last august, now the rest of us are going to get the chance to feel the taste of carnaval in Minas.

Beijinhos doces !
