Summer Solstice is our latest release from Daterra’s ‘Collection’ range of coffees, which are comprised of the very top lots grown on the farm.
This coffee is of the yellow bourbon variety, famed for its sweet flavour, striking aroma and citric acidity. In the cup Summer Solstice has a full, creamy mouthfeel with notes of fudge, caramel and orange.
We talk a lot about our focus on quality, traceability and sustainability – and this coffee delivers with distinction on all three. The quality is there to see in the cup and is testament to the meticulous Penta Process implemented at Daterra. In terms of sustainability, Daterra has possibly more accolades than any other farm on the planet, including being the first farm in the world to achieve Level A certification from Rainforest Alliance, and its recent B-Corp certification.
When it comes to traceability, there are few farms where you can trace the coffee to the specific plot on the farm on which it was grown. In the case of this coffee, it was grown on Plot TB 41. The availability of information such as this is crucial to fostering trust in the supply chain, and is indicative of the attention to detail that is increasingly required by conscious consumers, and implemented by caring producers to ensure sustainable production.
