Brazil Daterra Bourbon Yellow

Cupping notes

Floral aromas, subtle acidity and delicate body give up honey and caramel flavours with sweet citrus aftertaste

Description

The varietal Yellow Bourbon developed from the natural mutation process, that occurs when a plant amends its DNA to better thrive in a new environment. This varietal is a mutation from Red Bourbon originally from the Isle of Bourbon. When it was planted in Brazil, the climate and soil conditions resulted in the development of yellow cherries. Bourbon Yellow has intense citrus and floral characteristics on the break with soft fruity and citrus acidity, with an overlay of honey-caramel sweetness and texture, resulting in a creamy aftertaste.

Nick and I (Jamie) headed out at the end of July to Sao Paulo with a day to briefly recover and explore the nearby Ibirapuera Park. We’d be up at 5am Monday for the next leg heading up to Minas Gerais, a state divided in to four parts (Sul de Minas, Chapada de Minas, Matas de Minas, and Cerrado), and so begin our further education on the world’s largest coffee producing country.
