This is one of the rarest coffees we’ve ever released and as the name suggests, it really is a masterpiece. This coffee is incredibly classy. It reminds us of a cocktail bar with notes of whiskey, dark florals and orange. It has the best acidity of any Brazil we’ve ever had and we can’t get over how great the finish is, it’s super long and clean. With milk, it’s Werther’s Originals and it’s a real triumph. We love it.

About This Coffee

What a treat we have in store for you guys. Not only is this a very rare, experimental lot from one of the most revered farms in the world, it’s also the most expensive coffee we’ve ever bought.

It was about time we got our hands on another bonkers natural anaerobic fermentation coffee, and this one truly is a masterpiece (the clue was already in the name). It’s produced by Daterra who are a shining example of sustainable, large-scale coffee production in Brazil. Over 60% of their farmland is dedicated to non-productive, indigenous nature reserves. They are also one of the world leaders in varietal and processing research. Pretty incredible right, but there’s more.

Daterra farm is split into lots, each with a dedicated agronomist to care for the particular varietal, which is very uncommon for coffee growing. The masterpieces are the pinnacle of each year’s production and include coffees with experimental processes and new varietals (or both) all scoring over 90 points. In this case, the Varietal is called IPR100 which is a cross between Catuai, and a Catuai BA-10 hybrid. The huge point of difference here is that some of its genes are gained from Coffee Liberica. Google it for more info.

This coffee is incredibly classy, it reminds us of the smells and aromas of a speakeasy which might sound a bit far fetched, but all the notes just really reminded us of one. The first thing that hits you is whiskey, followed by dark florals and orange. It’s definitely boozy, there is a hit of plum wine and a real jamminess. This coffee has the best acidity of any Brazil we’ve ever had and we can’t get over how great the finish is, it’s super long and clean. With milk, it’s Werther’s Originals. We love it.
