Aramosa is a crossbreed between Coffea Arabica and Coffea Racemosa (which is a non-commercial coffea species). Breeding these species resulted in a plant with higher resistance to draughts and to the leaf miner insect. Basically, Aramosa inherited a few resistances from Racemosa while maintaining the great drink quality of Arabica.
The seeds arrived in Daterra farm in partnership with the Agronomic Institute of Campinas, which is a reference in coffee research. Daterra planted the first Aramosa variety on their genetic experimentation field – an area 100% dedicated to testing and researching new and uncommon varietals with currently over 100 varietals under test. On their very first harvesting, a very grateful surprise – the beans made super flowery and sweet drinks. Because of its great quality, Daterra gradually expanded their Aramosa areas and experimented with its processing. This coffee has less caffeine content than regular arabica beans – around 0.7% of caffeine.

THE BEANSTALK PROJECT
We want to turn our magic beans into something wonderful - just like Jack did in the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk. Let’s take the magic potential of coffee beans and make something beautiful - trees!
For every kg of Brazilian coffee sold, we will plant a tree in Brazil. 1 kg = 1 tree. That’s it.
