This coffee impresses with plenty of sweetness, set off by a restrained acid structure. With notes of milk chocolate and nut, it fulfils a classic taste profile of dry-processed Brazilian coffees and is pleasing on any occasion. In this way, the coffee also convinces lovers of more traditional coffees. The Yellow Catuaí cherries have - as the name suggests - a yellow colour and are relatively typical for Brazilian coffees - this is where this variety is most common. It is probably a naturally occurring cross between (Red) Bourbon and a Typica spontaneous mutation called Yellow Botucatu, from which Yellow Bourbon gets its yellow cherries. As it produces excellent qualities, it still enjoys great popularity in Brazil.
The coffee is grown in Sul de Minas - the southernmost region in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Due to the climatic conditions resulting from its location, it is the most important state for coffee cultivation, accounting for about 70% of all Brazilian Arabica cultivation - the average temperature is between 17-24 degrees Celsius, making it almost perfect for Arabica cultivation. Fazenda Passeio is one of the larger farms in the state. It has been in the family for four generations and Adolfo Henrique Vieira Ferreira, the manager of the farm, focuses strongly on the social welfare of his employees by paying bonuses, providing infrastructural care for the families, but also by promoting further training. Due to the predominantly hillside location on the fazenda, no harvesting machines can be used, so the coffee cherries are picked by hand - untypical for Brazilian coffee cultivation - but Adolfo is convinced that the increased labour input has a favourable effect on the quality of the coffee!
