Sweet Yellow Brazilian Coffee
The Sweet Yellow is a really exceptional batch of beans from Daterra, a very special grower in Brazil that’s Rainforest Alliance Certified with half of its land considered a nature reserve. Fruit trees are still interspersed with the coffee trees in order to provide feed for native birds. The farm is active in its community and in promoting the rights of the workers on the coffee farms. And the coffee itself? It’s made from a series of very special varietals (bourbon, catoise and caturra) that the folks at Daterra have spent years working on. Zingerman’s Roastmaster Allen treats it gently, so the brewed cup is amazingly sweet, very nutty, and super smooth, almost buttery, with lots of happy high notes.
