Donato’s family arrived from Italy to Campinas, Brazil to start a new life adventuring in coffee. After several challenges, Donato’s family was able to invest in 1976 in agriculture and that’s when “Daterra” was founded. Daterra farms in the city of Patrocínio are the oldest coffee plantations in Brazilian Cerrado region, and it is amongst the best coffee producing areas in the country, as the steady climate allows perfect conditions for beans to be grown.
Background: The Daterra Estate is best known for its innovative research, its respect for the environment and their workers, and of course its high quality coffee. With its plantations being located in the Cerrado region (State of Minas Gerais) and in the Mogiana region (State of Sao Paulo), the high altitude, stable temperature, and defined rainy season create perfect conditions for sustainable Arabica coffee farming.
