Story of Iracema:
IRACEMA is described as “the Indian of honey lips” on the homonym book from 1865 by José de Alencar. The book narrates one of Alencar’s favourite themes: the difficult love between a native Brazilian and a European immigrant in the colonial era in Brazil. The beautiful Iracema is the daughter of her tribe’s grand chief and holds the “Secret of Jurema” – the recipe of a sacred drink offered to warriors on war rituals. Because of her importance in the tribe, Iracema’s father arranges her marriage to their strongest
warrior, but she falls in love with a Portuguese man, Martin, who lives in an enemy tribe. To live this forbidden love, Iracema and Martin run away together. In the book, Iracema is depicted as the ideal of beauty and femininity and we thought that this Aramosa perfect represents her: aromas of blueberries, grapes, jasmine and raspberries; with flavours of strawberry, grape juice, and more berries (almost like bubblegum) and of course, lots of honey.
More about Aramosa from Daterra:
If you’re not familiar with the name Aramosa, you’re not the only one: this varietal is still in a “pre-cultivar” stage. That means that the genetics are still being tested, and the seeds will only become available for purchase and cultivation once they are fully stabilized. We have been researching these seeds for many years with IAC, the Agronomic Institute of Campinas – today, we have our own exclusive Aramosa selections! The Aramosa is a cross between Coffea Arabica and Coffea Racemosa. This crossbreeding was performed to inherit Racemosa’s low caffeine and drought resistance and Arabica’s flavour. Because the plant produces less caffeine, the beans always taste very sweet with no bitterness.
