“Humans have identified plants that lift the burden of physical pain; render us more alert or capable of uncommon feats; make us more sociable; elicit feelings of awe or ecstasy; nourish our imagination; transcend space and time; occasion dreams and visions and mystical experiences; and bring us into the presence of our ancestors or gods. Evidently, normal everyday consciousness is not enough for us humans; we seek to vary, intensify, and sometimes transcend it, and we have identified a whole collection of molecules in nature that allow us to do that.”
Its 2021 and we are all reminiscing about past travel experiences in the absence of the freedom to do so. Life has become so routine that its hard to remember life being different, so its a great pleasure to share some notes with you from a trip a seemingly way back in time now, especially as its very relevant to our coffee offering this year.
We’re bringing you news from our friends at Daterra in Brazil. This eco-focussed estate is the source of our customer favourite coffee The Baron. They hold some of the best sustainability credentials in the industry, becoming the first coffee farm in the world to receive Level A Certification from the Rainforest Alliance.
