A Matter of Concrete – Aramosa Brazil – Daterra
Daterra Estate is a well-known coffee farm in Brazil that prioritizes quality and sustainability. All of their coffees are Rainforest Alliance certified, indicating that they are produced on farms that focus on protecting forests, rivers, soils, and wildlife, while also providing fair compensation, medical care, and education to workers.
A unique variety grown on Daterra is Aramosa, a rare coffee that is a hybrid of Coffea Arabica (Typica) and Coffea Racemosa, a heirloom species known for its lower caffeine content. Coffea Racemosa is a resilient species that is drought-resistant and can grow in sandy soils. It has naturally low levels of caffeine, giving it a natural and unprocessed image.
To process Aramosa, Daterra partnered with SSG (Mikael Jasin, multiple Indonesian Barista Champion) and Catur and used inoculants from Indonesia. Only the ripest coffee cherries were selected and moved to a sealed fermentation tank, where they were sprayed with inoculants and fermented under controlled conditions until they reached a pH of 3.8. This lot of coffee has two distinct taste profiles, “Senja” and “Kamala”. Those processed through the “Kamala” profile will be dried with the cherry fruit still intact, while those processed through the “Senja” profile will be pulped and washed, but with the mucilage left on. The beans will be dried separately on raised beds until they reach 10-12% moisture content before being mixed back together in a hermetically sealed package to ensure a homogenous blend of the two processing methods.
The result is a distinctive coffee with a candy-like quality reminiscent of chewing bubble gum. It has a complex flavor profile with subtle sweet and acidic notes, and a finish of oolong tea.
