Yaí (The Jaguar), a constellation, observed by the Tukano ethnic group, is segmented into several smaller constellations – the animal is formed of the whiskers, head, body, and tail, plus a "star that guides the jaguar." This division is also present in the Tukano's system of social organisation – the "heads" of the community are at the top of the hierarchy, followed by the “body” and the “tail”.

Daterra has been researching coffee genetics for many years and have over 150 coffee genetic materials that are being tested in their experimental genetics bank. These research projects are developed in partnership with various scientific institutions and universities in Brazil, aiming to find and develop varieties that are more resilient to climate change, pests, diseases, and of course, that display amazing taste profiles. The Agronomic Institute of Campinas (IAC) is one of Daterra’s main research partners. In collaboration with Ethiopian authorities, the IAC researchers have selected various heirloom genetics from forests in Ethiopia and have been studying them. Some of those materials were brought to be tested and evaluated at Daterra – Yaí is the first production of those trees. It is composed of eight heirloom varieties, brought by IAC from the regions of Kaffa, Harar, and Shewa in Ethiopia – but produced in Cerrado. This first “collage” of Daterra produced Ethiopian varieties has been named Datopia.
