Daterra is a coffee grower and exporter best known for its innovative research, its respect for the environment, and its high quality coffee.
Miguel Paschoal arrived in Brazil from Bari, Italy in 1902 when he was 11 years old. In 1908, when the Campinas City Market was inaugurated, he started his first entrepreneur adventure: he opened a stand in this marketplace to sell coffee by the cup - a widely known model today.
As the business and the clients’ loyalty grew, Miguel then opened a grocery store, and later a gas station. The gas station was then sold and the first car service station in the city was opened, beginning the Dpaschoal chain. In 1980, the company began investing in agribusiness. In 1984, the investments in this area were all directed toward the production of sustainable and specialty coffees, in a way returning to the original family business.
Sustainability and social responsibility have always been a priority in all the company’s businesses, no matter what field or activity they have been. Daterra farms are comprised of 50% preservation areas and produce quality coffees, which are recognized worldwide. The company’s most valuable assets, its employees and the community, are especially cared for. This is an example of environmental and social responsibility, which the group has been preserving for over 100 years.
Arabica variety has always been the “king of coffees.” Its richness and balance are the result of more than 120 aromatic oils and more than 300 chemical elements, delivering an exotic and complex cup of coffee.
In partnership with The Agronomic Institute of Campinas and Illycafé, Daterra has extinsively researched to select and use multiple varieties.
