Daterra, Brazil's First Rainforest Alliance Certified Coffee Farm

Biologists have found rare macaws, owls, jaguar tracks and a giant anteater in the protected areas of Daterra, a Rainforest Alliance Certified farm in southeastern Brazil known as much for its superior beans as its commitment to conservation. The famous fazenda, in Minas Gerais -- an enormous, flat, plateau in an area known as the cerrado -- is owned by philanthropist and coffee expert Luis Norberto Pascoal, who in 1986 added coffee to the family agribusiness that was established in 1974.
