This coffee captivates with plenty of sweetness, set off by a restrained acidity structure. With notes of milk chocolate and nut, it fulfills a classic flavor 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 color and are relatively typical of Brazilian coffees - 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. Because it produces excellent qualities, it continues to enjoy great popularity in Brazil.
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 4 generations and Adolfo Henrique Vieira Ferreira, the manager of the farm, has a strong focus on the social welfare of his employees by paying bonuses, providing infrastructural support to the families, but also by promoting training. Due to the predominant slope on the fazenda, no harvesting machines can be used, so the coffee cherries are picked by hand - atypical for Brazilian coffee cultivation - but Adolfo is convinced that the increased labor has a favorable effect on the quality of the coffee!
