Brazil Daterra Sunrise by Crescent Moon Coffee & Tea Review |
  • Crescent Moon Coffee & Tea

    Mickleton, New Jersey
  • Brazil Daterra Sunrise

Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2008
Origin: Cerrado growing region, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, deeply pungent aroma: blackberry, black currant, nut. In the cup soft acidity, lightly syrupy body, great depth and sweetness. The dry berry notes take on a crisp dark chocolate character that carries into the long, rich finish.

Notes: This coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Daterra is among the world's most technically sophisticated coffee producers, with three model environmentally and socially progressive farms in the admired Cerrado growing region of Brazil. Although company literature indicates this coffee is from trees of both the Typica and Bourbon varieties, its cup profile seems strongly influenced by Bourbon character. Crescent Moon is an artisan small-batch roaster in the Philadelphia area emphasizing sustainability and quality in its coffee sourcing. Visit or call 888-693-7202 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who avoid intensity and acidity but pursue elegance.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
