Description

So what's about this strange expensive box of coffee? It is a first physical product we sell after almost 5 years of our work. We were always tempted to try a limited edition of our branded coffee but it never felt right until the last Summer when Radek returned from Brazil.

He visited the Daterra Coffee farm and he was blown away by their Masterpiece collection that represents top 1% of the harvest – usually the micro lots with an experimental processing and unique varietals. We thought this could be a coffee worth the project. We wanted to explore and document what does it take to make our own coffee from scratch.

STEP 1: COFFEE

Daterra Coffee is an award-winning coffee farm that was named the most sustainable coffee farm in the whole of Brazil. They try to change the perception of Brazilian coffee by producing outstanding cup profile that you wouldn't associate with Brazil. The 2018 World Brewers Cup Champion, Emi Fukahori, used Daterra's coffee in her presentation!

From all the samples we received, we chose the Aramosa Pulped Raisin. The Aramosa varietal is a crossbreed between Coffea arabica and Coffea racemosa, which is an heirloom Coffea species. It produces a floral and fruity cup with roses and jasmine, red berries, grapes and plum. The Aramosa beans usually present floral aromatics and a lower caffeine content than regular Arabica beans.

Pulped raisin is a process where they pulp the over-ripe coffee cherries. Usually, ripe cherries get pulped, and dried cherries become naturals – but they have an in-between process. The idea is really to combine the main features of naturals – sweetness, body, fruitiness – with the acidity and complexity of pulped-process.

STEP 2: PACKAGING

We wanted to create a packaging that would match the attention to detail from the farm level. The packaging that turns into a design object that you can keep enjoying even after you brewed all your coffee. We collaborated with award-winning Artbureau Studio in Prague who brought an expertise in a packing design and shared loved for coffee.

STEP 3: DOCUMENTARY FILM

As you know, we are not coffee roasters. We are journalists and filmmakers. So our goal for this project was to document all the steps on the camera to learn the process but also to produce a short documentary film. Our idea is that before you even brew a cup of coffee, you first watch the video and get excited. We thought that we know something about the coffee chain before this project but we knew nothing!
