"Sustainable agriculture was still quite unknown for Brazil at the time we started our coffee endeavors. How can one take something from earth without harming it? Simple: we borrow it, and then we give back. It is not only about producing the best coffee of the world. It is about producing coffee for a better world."
We have been working with Brazil’s Daterra Estate since our early days as a micro-roaster occupying a small corner of the Zingerman’s Mail Order warehouse. Over 10 years later, Daterra Estate is still producing some of the finest coffees we have ever tasted, and is the first farm in the world to have been achieved the highest certification on sustainability.
Learn about the story behind the estate, the coffee that is grown there, and why Daterra is one of the most innovative coffee producers in the world. Fernanda Pizol Oliveira and João Carlos Reis are joining us all the way from Brazil to lead a presentation about their farm, and offer a coffee tasting.
Admission is $10 and includes Zingerman's snacks and a tasting of coffee from Brazil.
